Workshop announcement: call for papers
Updated: Dec 3, 2022
We are delighted to announce the two day workshop at the School of Anthropology and Conservation, University of Kent (Canterbury, UK) entitled:
Integrating ZooMS and zooarchaeology: methodological challenges and interpretive potentials
The workshop will take place on 18th-19th April 2023 and aims to start a closer collaboration between zooarchaeologists and archaeological scientist in an effort to overcome some of the current methodological problems with ZooMS/zooarchaeological integration. After a day of introductory talks and case study presentations, a second day is devoted to a round table discussion, inviting all participants to contribute their experience and expertise to the issues at hand.
Talks reporting on ZooMS results and/or quantitative zooarchaeological studies of Pleistocene faunal collections are welcome. If you would like to participate in person on both days, please submit an abstract (250 words) for a 15 min talk.
The deadline for submissions is February 1st 2023, and for further information or to submit an abstract contact Dr Geoff Smith. See the workshop page on our website for further details.
Selected travel funding available.
We look forward to receiving your submissions and welcoming you to the University of Kent.
