GAST stands for ‘Gothenburg archaeological student association’. We are a non-profit association for students at the department of Historical Studies at Gothenburg University. GAST arranges workshops, evening lectures, field trips, surveys and social activities to encourage networking and strengthen relations between students at all levels, as well as between students and researchers.
With the help of suggestions from our members, the board plans and organizes a variety of activities during the year. A reoccurring event is the Kick Off-party at the start of each semester when new students at the department are welcomed. We also have parties in the spring and during the winter holiday, as well as other social events like game- and movie-nights. Each semester GAST tries to organize different field excursions like surveys of Bronze Age rock art sites and even small-scale excavations. We also publish a student publication called GASTen here on our webpage.
