Konferencja "Copper and Trade"

The Institute of Archaeology, Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland is pleased to invite to the Second International Conference Copper and Trade.




After very fruitful first edition of the Conference in 2012 we would like to broaden our interest to copper acquisition, production, symbolism and distribution. Special attention will be also drawn to trade patterns in general. All issues related to the Mediterranean and northern part of Europe are welcome. Below you will find our proposition of several main themes of the conference, but please consider them only as a suggestion.


The meeting is planned to be held on 9-11th October 2015. During the conference we also plan the International Workshop "On the Routes of Near East" summarizing three-year project "The Role and Significance of the Egyptian Impact on Socio-political Development of the Southern Levant in the Period of Early Bronze I".


The conference will take place at Jagiellonian University in Krakow.
