Due to coronavirus, the 2020 conference has now been postponed to Sept 2021. It will still take place in Salisbury, hopefully with the same lineup of speakers. Watch this space for updates! The AGM will still be held online, on 26 Sept. Further information will follow when available.


We are excited to bring the SCA's annual meeting to Salisbury this year, to align with the cathedral's celebrations of its 700th anniversary.  The conference theme is ‘Movement in the ecclesiastical landscape’ and will include:


On Friday 25 September, Tim Tatton-Brown will deliver the keynote lecture.

On Saturday 26 September, the conference will feature a full programme of lectures and a tour of cathedral.

On Sunday 27 September, we will undertake site visits to a number of major ecclesiastical sites in the area, including Old Sarum and Wilton parish church.
