anthraco 2021 – 8th International Anthracology Meeting
Plant use and environmental history: wood and charcoal evidence from archaeological and natural archives
The 8th edition of the International Anthracology Meeting – anthraco2021 – will take place in the city of Porto from 6th to 10th September, 2021, in a joint organization of InBIO (Research Network in Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology), the Natural History and Science Museum of the University of Porto, with the support of DRCN (Northern Regional Directorate of Culture).
anthraco2021 will gather specialists in charcoal and wood analysis focusing on both archaeological and natural sedimentary contexts, within the broad themes of Human Paleoecology, Ethno-archaeology and Environmental History. State-of-the-art theoretical and methodological approaches in charcoal science either in site-studies or regional/extra-regional perspectives, as well as innovative experimental and laboratorial advances in dendroanthracology and related fields will surely make this a very stimulating meeting.
Most of the activities of the anthraco2021 congress – conferences, coffee-breaks and lunches – will take place at the Casa das Artes (House of the Arts).
The wine reception and the lab session will take place just 300 m from the conference venue, at Galeria da Biodiversidade (Biodiversity Hall) in the Porto Botanical Garden which is part of the Natural History and Science Museum of the University of Porto.
