Abstract submission before February 14th 2021



The last decade, and the major technological innovations that have emerged in high-throughput DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry, imaging and computational science have truly revolutionized archaeological science. This has provided unprecedented opportunities to leverage the full archaeological record, including small organic residues and biomolecules, in order to reconstruct our evolutionary past at unprecedented resolution. Biomolecular archaeology provides a direct snapshot of how ancient societies and groups lived. Past (human) groups can for example be tracked through space and time, but also how they became adapted to their environment and responded to global environmental crises and historical epidemics. Biomolecular archaeology can also measure the impact of our activities on the environment and the communities we interact with. The conference will represent the whole breadth of research areas in biomolecular archaeology at a time of exponentially increasing possibilities. It will also address new emerging technologies as well as best current methodological standards.
