Ancestral Stones: Reimagining the Significance of Stone from the Paleolithic to the Present

The workshop will focus on integrating other ways of knowing and understanding the material world with human pasts, particularly regarding human-stone interactions, including stone technologies and its social/cosmologic/other significance; stone quarrying, engagements with specific stones; stones in special contexts in archaeology; stone and symbolism; gender issues and whatever else that might be relevant. We envision a workshop in which scholars will exchange ideas and bring new insights to the relationships between humans and stone creating inclusive histories to human past behavior and human cultural evolution.
