Workshop "The Archaeology of Technological Change"

Retour aux événements

This workshop investigates the archaeology of technology and innovation. It aims to explore the methodologies used by archaeologists to detect and interpret technological change in the past and how we use these innovations to better understand the societies that implemented them. The workshop focuses on case studies from several regions and time periods in order to promote cross-disciplinary discussion and engagement.
