The Oxford Martin Future of Food Programme and The British Museum are hosting a one day Conference on 23rd August 2018, at the Oxford Martin School, Oxford.

Today’s challenge of feeding an ever increasing population requires a whole food systems approach to agricultural and food security research, in order to deliver productive, resilient and sustainable food and farming. Archaeological, historical, and anthropological research are all underdeveloped resources in modern agricultural sustainability studies, but are tools well-suited to investigating food security and agricultural development over time under different challenges. This conference brings together leading researchers and practitioners in archaeology, anthropology and modern food systems to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the field of global food security.
