International Conference: Communities, Landscapes, and Interaction in Neolithic Greece – Call for papers

The ‘Communities, Landscapes and Interaction in Neolithic Greece’ conference aims to investigate our changing perceptions on Neolithic landscapes in Greece and to reconsider the dynamics of human-environment interactions. Key topics carefully selected to unfold and trigger discussions on the emerged diversity and variability of Neolithic societies in Greece are landscape, land use, palaeoenvironment, networks and connectivity. Emphasis is given to the interdisciplinary nature of research that can produce synthetic results.

The conference is organized as a final event for the project ‘IGEAN – Innovative Geophysical Approaches for the Study of Early Agricultural Villages of Neolithic Thessaly’, carried out by the Laboratory of Geophysics – Satellite Remote Sensing and Archaeo-environment (GeoSat ReSeArch) of the Institute for Mediterranean Studies – Foundation for Research and Technology (IMS-FORTH) in Crete in cooperation with the ΙΓ’ Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities in Volos.

The event will take place at the Conference Room of the Institute for Mediterranean Studies in Rethymno, Crete, on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th of May 2015.
