[PL] W Nowy Rok wchodzimy z pewną nadzieją. W tym duchu chcemy Was zachęcić do uczestnictwa w tegorocznej konferencji EAA, która odbędzie się w Kilonii (oby w realu!). Szczególnie polecamy sesję #465 Soil and Sediment Micromorphology in Archaeology, którą współorganizuje nasz geoarcheolog, Mateusz Krupski. Cel spotkania jest prosty – poprzez prezentację konkretnych przykładów zastosowania badań mikromorfologicznych w archeologii, chcemy w przystępny sposób pokazać potencjał tej metody. Zapraszamy do udziału, wspólnej dyskusji i zgłaszania wystąpień (do 11.02.2021).

Poniżej abstrakt sesji. Do zobaczenia w Kilonii!


[ENG] We enter the New Year with some hope. In this spirit, we’d like to encourage You to attend the annual EAA conference, which will take place in Kiel. We specially recommend session #465 Soil and Sediment Micromorphology in Archaeology, co-organised by our geoarchaeologist, Mateusz Krupski. The aim of the meeting is simple – by presenting clear-cut examples of micromorphological research in archaeology, we want to show the potential of this method in an accessible way. We invite You to participate in the discussion and welcome contributions (deadline: 11.02.2021).

Below the session abstract. See You in Kiel!

Soil and Sediment Micromorphology in Archaeology

Over the last decades soil and sediment micromorphology has become an important technique to study diverse archaeological problems. Whereas it initially mostly dealt with stratigraphical issues and palaeoenvironmental reconstructions, the scope has definitely widened. This resulted in a steady growth of publications (see for instance Stoops, 2014). Together with this growth we also witness a discipline that reaches its maturity with a series of important reference works. Although these developments are encouraging, Goldberg and Aldeias (2016) rightly point out that the technique is still underutilized in archaeological research. One of the main points they make is that many archaeologists are still unfamiliar with the discipline and its potential and limitations. The aim of our session is therefore to present some clear (recent) examples of how soil and sediment micromorphology can be utilised in the archaeological framework. We welcome contributions that highlight the potential of soil and sediment micromorphology to address specific archaeological questions from the interpretation of archaeological structures and stratigraphy to the reconstruction of past environments and the human-environment relations.
