ヨーロッパ先史時代の水没遺跡と水中考古学に関するセッション

今年9月イタリアで開かれるthe European Archaeologists’ Association (EAA) conferenceにてヨーロッパでの水没遺跡と水中考古学に関するセッションが設けられるようです。現在発表論文も受け付けているとのことです。国際プロジェクトに関する発表にフォーカスしているとあります。

Dear Colleagues, we would like to invite you to contribute a paper to the proposed session at the 15th Annual EAA Meeting to be held in Riva del Garda, Italy, September 2009:

Underwater archaeology and the future of submerged European prehistory
with keynote papers by:
– Dr. Anders Fischer (National Cultural Heritage Agency, Denmark)
– Professor Geoff Bailey (University of York, United Kingdom)

Major events of human prehistory, such as the post-glacial recolonization of Northern Europe and the spread of agriculture though the Mediterranean, took place across landscapes that are now, at least partially, underwater — the consequence of global sea-level rise and regional crustal subsidence since the Late Pleistocene. Much of the submerged landscapes lie at depths accessible to divers and can be investigated archaeologically. Prehistoric underwater research has emerged in recent decades from the western Baltic to the eastern Mediterranean and methodology can be applied to coastal regions throughout Europe and its surrounding environs. Moreover, there is a growing awareness of the potential for underwater archaeology to transform our ideas about key events in prehistory. This session will examine new developments in the field of submerged prehistoric landscapes. Contributions will cover not only in the results of current underwater research, both archaeological and paleoenvironmental, but also underwater methodology and techniques for site discovery, excavation, conservation, and interpretation. Emphasis will be placed on international collaboration and prospects for future research.

Paper title and abstract (200 word max.) by February 28, 2009 to Jonathan Benjamin with “Submerged Prehistory 2009” in the subject line.
