Congrès, colloques, réunions


7-12 august 2023
Cairns (Australia




The major theme for the conference is ‘Oceans and Coastline – Past, Present and Future’. The location of the conference on the doorstep of the internationally renowned Great Barrier Reef provides an opportunity to consider the ecological dynamism in which ancient cultures are embedded, and how they shape and are shaped by place. The rising and falling of sea levels, the transformations of coastlines through time and the shifting array of available resources is a context that resonates well beyond the Great Barrier Reef. In various ways this context frames prehistoric narratives throughout the world, as well as directly speaking to contemporary discussions of climate change, so clearly highlighted to the world by COP26. The long-term perspective provided by archaeology permits both environmental change and cultural corollary to be viewed as long-term structures, giving archaeology the unique ability to inform upon current models and projections. This theme speaks to finding our voice in this arena and demonstrating that zooarchaeology has a very real role to play.
