Iron Age identity
Fingerprinting the Iron Age.
Approaches to identity in the European Iron Age. Integrating South-Eastern Europe into the debate.
23rd - 25th September, 2011. Magdalene College and McDonald Institute, Cambridge
The main goals of the conference were:
- to encourage dialogue on a general level between South-East European and British archaeology;
- to provide the occasion for South-East European, British and other European archaeologists to conceptualise their views on Iron Age identity;
- to make South-East European researchers aware of how identity issues are tackled by scholars from Britain and other parts of Europe as well as the other way around
- to familiarize Britain based researchers with the latest Iron Age discoveries from South-East Europe
Contributors were invited to present papers on the construction of identity in the European Iron Age. Suggested topics for identity construction included, but were not limited to:
- settlement and place
- burial and the body
- art and material culture
- We are grateful to the McDonald Institute, Magdalene College and the Archaeology section of the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology for core support
