The conference is addressed to researchers working on the Mesolithic, especially in the area extending from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea and the Danube Basin, with the Alps representing its core region. The aim is to highlight adaptation dynamics to different environments both from synchronic and diachronic viewpoints, and to investigate the role played by the Alpine chain in favouring and unfavouring contacts and cultural exchanges.
Conference sessions are going to focus on peculiar aspects of Mesolithic lifeways:
1. Holocene landscapes
2. Subsistence strategies
3. Lithic, bone and other technologies
4. I vs. II Mesolithic
5. Settlement dynamics
6. Mesolithic territories
