An international conference on quarrying, production, function and exchange of ground stone artifacts


Following the successful approach of the AGSTR founding meeting held in Haifa 2015, the conference is dedicated to a wide range of ground stone tools related topics. These include the social contexts of ground stone artifacts in different regions and cultures from prehistoric to historic times; quarries, quarrying technologies and quarrying tools; production techniques; micro/macro-wear and residue analyses, as well as other functional studies; trade and exchange systems and mechanisms; studies of bedrock features; ethnography of ground stone use. We intend to dedicate a session especially to quern and millstone studies. Contributions are welcome addressing geochemical-mineralogical methods for raw material characterization, the creation of data backgrounds for provenance analyses, data treatment and evaluation (e.g. statistic approaches, GIS evaluations etc.).
Other topics and themes are also welcome. The subject areas and numbers of sessions will be determined when the deadline for sending abstracts is due and all abstracts are considered.
