The International Meeting “Wood and Charcoal: Approaches from Archaeology, Archaeobotany, Ethnography and History” is organised by Lab2Pt and the University of Minho, and will take place in Braga from 15-16 April. It is focused on the study of wood and charcoal from archaeological, archaeobotanical, ethnographic and historical approaches. Wood was in the past a key material and was used in many different ways in the day-to-day life. Domestic, artisanal and ritual tools, weapons, structures, buildings, log-boats, ships, carts, etc. were made of wood. It was also crucial for the developing of rituals and ceremonies. One of the main goals of this Meeting is to give visibility to this ephemeral material that made part in the past of all the spheres of life. The approaches to the study of wood –and also to charcoal- would be made since disciplines such as Archaeology, Archaeobotany, Ethnography and History with strong interrelations between them. The Meeting would include conferences lectured by recognised experts besides to short-communications and a poster-session, ending with a round-table.
The organisation welcomes short-communications and posters in English or Portuguese. Candidates are invited to submit a title and abstract of 300 words maximum before March 21th 2016. The abstract, accompanied by the affiliation and address data of the candidate, can be submitted to the following e-mail: email@example.com. Candidates will be informed regarding the acceptance of their proposals by the 1st of April 2016.
