Welcome to the Society for the Study of the Past

The Society for the Study of Childhood in the Past is an interdisciplinary society to promote all aspects of the study of childhood in the past. Childhood in the past is a new and growing discipline, incorporating archaeology, anthropology, history, art history, sociology, psychology and many other studies. Our range is global; our chronology runs from the beginning of human society to last week.

We are an active, inclusive Society. We have a Journal, Childhood in the Past, an annual International Conference, a UK Spring conference, and a monograph series. We support graduate studies and research with small grants.
