Conference: Inequalities in Supra-Regional Eurasian Exchange Networks (8000 – 2000 BP)

Dec 02, 2021 to Dec 04, 2021

Hybrid: Audimax CAP2 – Hörsaal C at Kiel University and on ZOOM

Exchange networks structure and development are essential for explaining social and economic inequalities. The conference aims to detect those inequalities within the distribution of sourced raw materials over time and space. It centres on large-scale exchange networks from the Neolithic to the Iron Age.

For access to the zoom conference please contact: Linda Seifert stu227208@mail.uni-kiel.de
For all other questions: Johanna Hilpert jhilpert@roots.uni-kiel.de or Tim Kerig tkerig@roots.uni-kiel.de

The event will be held in a hybrid form at Audimax CAP2 – Hörsaal C at Kiel University and virtually on ZOOM* (Due to the pandemic, access to the conference venue is currently restricted to the speakers. External audiences are welcome to attend the meeting via ZOOM and to participate in the discussion.)

Biweekly Colloquium: “Feeding Anglo-Saxon England: The Bioarchaeology of an ‘Agricultural Revolution’ ”

Dec 06, 2021 from 04:15 PM to 05:45 PM

Virtual Meeting

Prof. Dr. Helena Hamerow  •  School of Archaeology, University of Oxford

Feeding Anglo-Saxon England: The Bioarchaeology of an ‘Agricultural Revolution’

The early medieval ‘agricultural revolution’ saw the advent of extensive forms of cereal farming that supported the exceptionally rapid growth of towns, markets and populations. The spread of open-field farming in particular is regarded as one of the transformative changes of the Middle Ages, one that has left a clear mark on the landscape today.  Historians and archaeologists studying these developments in England have had to rely on a few pre-Conquest texts, post-medieval maps and scatters of potsherds associated with manuring when investigating the ‘cerealisation’ of the early medieval countryside. The project ‘Feeding Anglo-Saxon England’ (FeedSax) addresses an ongoing debate regarding the origins and spread of new forms of cereal farming in England between c AD 700-1300 from the perspective of bioarchaeology (plant macrofossils, animal bones, and pollen). This talk presents an overview of some of FeedSax’s results, which constitute direct evidence for the conditions in which medieval crops were grown.

Biweekly Colloquium: “Conjunctions and Disjunctions in Interpretations of European Iron Age Socio-temporal Meshworks”

Jan 17, 2022 from 04:15 PM to 05:45 PM

Format to be confirmed

Prof. Dr. Bettina Arnold  •  Department of Anthropology, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Conjunctions and Disjunctions in Interpretations of European Iron Age Socio-temporal Meshworks

The archaeological record presents us with a conflated material record of interactions that are the product of horizontal meshworks at several geographic scales simultaneously. In addition to temporalities that reflect potentially different meshworks depending on the archaeological context in question (settlement vs. mortuary deposits, for example), these interactions were engaged in by actors belonging to different social categories based on age, gender, role and status. While some individuals may have moved vertically between these layers of relational systems most did not and yet we analyze the material traces of the interactions that occurred in Iron Age contexts as though they occurred within a single relational plane. Based on the extensive data sets and new methodologies now available to us it has become clear that interaction and mobility patterns were differentiated along several different axes geographically, temporally and socially. We must find ways of distinguishing between these conjunctive and disjunctive planes to develop a more complete picture of the various modes of early Iron Age communication and interaction. It should be possible to develop a more nuanced approach to this interpretive challenge with specific reference to the still emerging and by now quite extensive mortuary evidence from the West Hallstatt area, which will serve as the case study for this presentation.
