On the rocks : 10th International Symposium on Knappable Materials

[Congrès, colloques, réunions]

8-10 septembre 2015
Barcelone

Main Sessions
The symposium will focus on two major themes : The chaîne opératoire of knapped stone artefacts, and auxilliary sciences related to lithics (in particular microcrystaline quartz).

Theme 1 - Chaîne opératoire
- Raw material exploitation strategies - mining and surface collecting
- Ancient lithic trade and economics
- Stone tool production and processing techniques
- Use-wear analyses - signs of usage on stone tools (a.k.a. traceology)

Theme 2 - Auxilliary sciences
- Microcrystaline quartz as a geological material
- Characterising lithic sources
- Lithotheques - collections of comparative raw materials
- Gemology - Microcrystaline quartz and obsidian as gemstones today and in the past

Sessions Proposals
We are pleased to invite proposals for themed sessions, round table discussions or workshops for the upcoming symposium. Sessions are invited on current issues and research in the field of microcrystaline quartz (knapped or otherwise) or knappable materials in general. Sessions may be specific to methodology, regional research, or any other theme.
