The idea for establishing an international gathering of the academic community where scholars can discuss current archaeological topics on Mediaeval Archaeology came from researchers from the Institute of Archeology dealing with the Middle Ages (see Organizational Committee).
Although based on knowledge yielded mostly by archaeological research the topics of the conferences exceeds the basic framework of the archaeological discipline. And the conferences are conceived as a multidisciplinary encounter of different ideas, approaches, methods, results and interpretations.
Furthermore, the topics of the conferences are open to wider archaeological and historical periods, not only the Middle Ages.
