via Viet Nam Net, 25 September 2018: A news mention about the IPPA congress going on this week, where I have been following up on the latest archaeological developments in the region and catching up with old and new friends. You can follow the live twitter coverage here.
The 21st Congress of the Indo-Pacific Prehistory Association (IPPA) has opened in the former imperial city of Hue in central Thua Thien-Hue province, bringing together 700 archeologists from 35 countries, including the host Vietnam.
The six-day congress will continue until September 28, with several separate topic meetings as well as visits to relics built by the Nguyen Dynasty (1802-1945) in Hue.
IPPA Secretary-General Ian Lilley said the congress would be a chance for archeologists around the world to gain a deeper understanding of the progress of archeology in the Indo-Pacific region.
