We are pleased to announce the publication of a new book edited by Ellen Kendall and Ross Kendall focusing on families in the past. Developing out of the 9th Annual SSCIP Conference held in Durham, UK in 2016, The Family in Past Perspective integrates interdisciplinary perspectives from archaeology, history, art history, and bioarchaeology to contextualise the study of children in the past within family networks. The volume features important contributions by SSCIP members, including Prof Eileen Murphy, Prof Becky Gowland and Dr. Sian Halcrow, Dr. Sophie Newman, Dr. Sally Crawford, Prof John Burton, and Prof Suzanne Conway, among others.
The Family in Past Perspective is published by Routledge in hardback, paperback, and electronic formats, and is available for a limited time at a discount. Please see the link to the flyer below for more information on how to claim the discount, and a link to the website here.
