4th Northern German Stone Age Meeting in Kiel

After the virtual Stone Age Meeting in 2020, due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, researchers and interested parties from all over Northern Germany gathered this year on 3 December in a hybrid format in Kiel. Once more, the roundtable was organised in cooperation with the Cluster of Excellence ROOTS and the CRC1266 - Scales of Transformation. With up to 56 participants, the 2021 Stone Age Roundtable Meeting was attended better than ever before. The 16 contributions covered the period from the Middle Palaeolithic to the transition to the Bronze Age. In addition to the presentations on current research at and around older excavated and newly investigated sites, questions of cultural heritage management and the further handling of excavation documentation were addressed. The contributions were rounded off by lively discussions. There was also great interest in the planned excursion. However, due to the weather conditions, it was postponed until spring 2022. Thus, with warmer weather and less critical infection rates, we hope to meet with an interested group at the outer bay of Eckernförde, where Harm Paulsen will introduce the basic techniques of flint working.
