International conference „Investigating Bones: Diet, Health, Environment in the Baltic Region“
2019 October 4-5, Vilnius university Faculty of History (Universiteto g. 7, Room 321, 3rd floor)
The meeting will focus on an interdisciplinary approach to the bioarchaeology of human and animal remains. The objective is to present up-to-date bioarchaeological research results in a variety of areas: stable isotopes, migrations, paleopathology, epidemiology, forensic archaeology, mummy studies, and more. One of the meeting’s goals is to introduce the osteological material of the Baltic region currently available, thus providing all participants with an opportunity to evaluate these collections’ potential for future research. Therefore, this international meeting will provide colleagues from the Baltic region a unique opportunity to exchange ideas on various topics and to discuss diverse perspectives and possible future collaboration, including building on existing professional relationships. In addition to oral presentations, there will be a traditional “hands-on” session, a visit to the anthropological and zooarchaeological collections stored at Vilnius University, as well as an excursion to crypts. There is a possibility to publish the proceedings of this international meeting in the journal Archaeologia Lituana.
