RAW EARTH IN FUNERARY CONTEXT / LA TERRE CRUE EN CONTEXTE FUNÉRAIRE -scadenza prorogata al 17 giugno

The international conference “RAW EARTH IN FUNERARY CONTEXT. Formal, typological and technical developments during the Neolithic and the Bronze Age” will be held the 8th and 9th March 2023 in Montpellier – France (info: https://terrecruefun23.sciencesconf.org).
The objective of this conference is to highlight the place of raw earth in the funerary sphere during the Neolithic and the Bronze Age, to understand its formal complexity and the variability of techniques.
The conference will be organized around four broad themes:
– Theme 1: raw earth as architecture, architectural device or furniture element of the burial;
– Theme 2: raw earth in the treatment of the dead;
– Theme 3: technical aspects and technological analysis at different scales of study;
– Theme 4: the economy of the raw earth materials at the scale of the tomb alone or the associated village.
The aim of the meeting is to discuss and compare data from various geographical horizons over a long period. Moreover, beyond the archaeological examples, it seems important to open this conference to ethnological examples.
Submission of proposals: proposals for papers or posters should be submitted to the organizing committee before the June 17th 2022 (on the site: https://terrecruefun23.sciencesconf.org).
