CAMELOT Conference: Sail Into SJU this Sunday on a Viking Ship

Date: Friday, September 14, 2018
Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
The Conference on Archaeology, the Medieval, and Experimental Learning Outcomes (CAMELOT) takes place at St. Jerome’s University on Sunday, September 16, 2018, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Everyone is welcome to take this journey into the past at the St. Jerome's University Academic Centre and grounds, located at 290 Westmount Street North (on the University of Waterloo campus).
St. Jerome’s University, the students of its Medieval Studies Program, and the interns attached to the Medieval Digital Research in Arts and Graphic Environmental Networks (DRAGEN) Lab, host this complimentary event. It grows out of a Wilfrid Laurier University conference known as Forward Into the Past, which ran for eighteen years. With this move and the launch of the inaugural CAMELOT Conference, the new format now offers a full program of talks, lectures, roundtable discussions, artisanal craft workshops, and other great attractions. This year’s highlights include Darrel Markewitz, an artisan blacksmith, who will build and operate a recreated Norse iron forge; a reconstructed Viking ship, the Gyrfalcon; and an expanded vendor hall!
“CAMELOT is a student-focused, outward looking day at St. Jerome’s University that engages traditional and non-traditional forms of learning,” notes Dr. Steven Bednarski, Director of the DRAGEN Lab. “It brings in members of the public who have expertise in a variety of medieval arts, crafts, and sciences, and combines archaeology, history, and literature to explore new and exciting ways to bring the past to life.”
