The SSCIP website has moved to:


SSCIP is an international, multi-disciplinary society to promote the study of childhood and children in the past, from earliest human society to the twentieth century. 

The Society’s aims are to act as an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion, dissemination and integration of ideas, information and discoveries about children and childhood in the past worldwide, from any chronological period. 

The Society welcomes members and contributions from a broad range of academic disciplines, including archaeology, anthropology, history, human biology, literary studies, medicine, philosophy, sociology, theology and any other disciplines.

Membership of the Society brings with it a copy of the Society’s journal and reduced fees for the annual conference. The Society also welcomes students and promotes their work.
