The 2014 PAA/SAfA joint meeting aims are to bring together Africanist archaeologists and colleagues in a forum for the exchange of information and ideas; to create contacts between students, researchers and practitioners across Africa in multiple disciplines; to forge links and friendships; and to facilitate and promote inter-African collaboration.

To this end, the theme of the 2014 joint meeting is African Archaeology without Frontiers.

This conference will cover all aspects of African archaeology and all periods from the earliest hominids to the historical period.
