Il y a 30000 ans, la préhistoire du cinéma A noter / Autour de la Préhistoire ArchéoZooThèque

Congrès, colloques, réunions

20-24 août 2013
Iasi (Roumanie) - Alexandru Ioan Cuza University

This conference will cover all aspects of knapped stone raw materials from geological origin, to mining, usage, and laboratory analyses on these materials. Although we expect that there will be more focus on chert and other microcrystalline quartz varieties, we also encourage presentations related to other knappable materials such as obsidian, quartzite, rhyolite and others. Papers will be accepted on any culture or time period. Whether you are a field archaeologist, laboratory researcher, ethnographer or a modern day knapper yourself, come tell us your stories.
