Call for papers: a special issue on geoarchaeology (abstract due 20 Sep)

Post date: Sep 11, 2016 2:11:09 PM

Dear members of the IAG Working Group of Geoarchaeology,

As proceedings of a geoarchaeology session at the World Archaeological Congress (WAC-08) in Kyoto, Japan, we, the conveners of the session, want to organise a Special Issue in Quaternary International, Geoarchaoelogy, Journal of Archaeological Science or Geomorphology, depending on the editing issues and the submission deadlines. We are about to submit a proposal.

We also invite other colleagues working in geoarchaeology to contribute to this special issue.

The topic will focus on subjects that might be related to on-site processes or regional landscape evolution. It will be divided in three different approaches regarding the different kind of archaeological contexts:

  1. New methods for data exploitation or acquisition on key sites that require a cutting edge approach
  2. Methodologies that can promote a better understanding of destroyed sites, sites with a “bad taphonomy” or a stratigraphy with “unvisible data”
  3. Off-site methodologies or a regional approach that highlights human impacts or occupation

If you are interested, please write us a short email with an abstract of a max. of 200 words.

Please let us know until the 20.09.2016 if you are interested. Write an email to stockf "at" uni-koeln.de (cc: tara.beuzen "at" gmail.com, kondo "at" chikyu.ac.jp).

Best regards,

Friederike Stock, Tara Beuzen-Waller and Yasuhisa Kondo
