Première circulaire

"Between 30,000 and 20,000 years ago, rapid climatic changes occurred as the Scandinavian ice sheet expanded. Not only did palaeoenvironments change, but human societies also transformed themselves. A considerable cultural unification occurred in Europe, which resulted in the origin of the Gravettian technocomplex. Throughout the next millennia, Gravettian hunters occupied a huge part of Europe, in an area covering several million square kilometers, stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to the Russian plains. To celebrate the 45th anniversary of the first excavations at the Gravettian site Krakow-Spadzista Street, we invite colleagues from different fields of science to present new results of their Gravettian studies. We encourage discussions not only in archeology but also zooarcheology, palaeoanthropology, geology, paleobotany, and all other fields of Quaternary science. The Conference "World of Gravettian Hunters" is planned for June 2013 in Kraków, Poland. We will publish the proceedings of this meeting in an international peer-reviewed journal. More information will be provided in the first circular."
