A conference on innovative approaches to chipped and ground stone artefacts organised by postgraduates from the University of Manchester
First circular and call for expressions of interest
The conference, organised by a team of enthusiastic postgraduate and other researchers from the University of Manchester, will focus on innovative approaches to the study of raw materials, tool use and technology.
The conference will open on Thursday evening, 25th February 2016, with a round-table discussion led by Dr Chantal Conneller with keynote speakers, followed by an informal reception.
Friday (26th February) will be devoted to 20 minute papers and posters on innovative approaches to our main topics - raw materials, tool use and technology.
The Manchester Museum is organising a Stone Age Saturday for the following day and conference participants are invited to stay on and partake in this by demonstrating to the public some of the things we can find out about lithics.
We would like to invite expressions of interest and proposals as soon as possible; please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for abstracts will be 6th November 2015.
A (small) conference fee will be payable by all delegates (including speakers); registration will open 15th December 2015.
