Résumé

Geoarchaeology, defined as the application of geosciences and geographical methods to prehistory, archaeology, and history, is now widely applied to study key subjects such as occupation patterns, territory and site exploitation, palaeoclimatic, palaeoenvironemental, and palaeogeographical changes, as well as anthropogenic impacts and system responses. The multidisciplinary and multiscalar dimensions of geoarchaeological approaches have encouraged continuous development and innovation of methods and approaches that have opened new possibilities for explorations in geographical sectors previously inaccessible, the development of large-scale data acquisitions and treatment, and also the development of microscopic scale analysis precision. This session will highlight global research in geoarchaeology with particular emphasis on innovative methods or cutting edge research using established approaches.

Argument

Geoarchaeology, defined as the application of geosciences and geographical methods to prehistory, archaeology, and history, is now widely applied to study key subjects such as occupation patterns, territory and site exploitation, palaeoclimatic, palaeoenvironemental, and palaeogeographical changes, as well as anthropogenic impacts and system responses.    The multidisciplinary and multiscalar dimensions of geoarchaeological approaches have encouraged continuous development and innovation of methods and approaches that have opened new possibilities for explorations in geographical sectors previously inaccessible (aerial, submarine, and underground), the development of large-scale data acquisitions and treatment (through spatial analysis and the use of GIS), and also the development of microscopic scale analysis precision (micro fauna or vegetal remains, micromorphology). This session will highlight global research in geoarchaeology with particular emphasis on innovative methods or cutting edge research using established approaches.

The Word Archaeological Congress is a great opportunity for presenting and promoting new fieldworks, tools and methodologies in geoarchaeology to an international audience. Proposals submission might be done online (it will close on the 30th of April) but you are welcome to contact us if you have any questions regarding this event.
