Congratulate the GAPA For Their 30th Anniversary

This is a message from Simon Trixl, chairman of the Association of Archaeozoology and Prehistoric Anthropology (Gesellschaft für Archäozoologie und Prähistorische Anthropologie, GAPA):

Dear colleagues,

in 2024, the Association of Archaeozoology and Prehistoric Anthropology/Gesellschaft für Archäozoologie und Prähistorische Anthropologie (GAPA, will celebrate its 30th anniversary. Founded in 1994 in close connection to the ICAZ-Congress held in Konstanz, one of GAPA’s main aims is bridging the “gap” between Archaeozoology and Prehistoric Anthropology with regard to methodology, research questions and joint projects. GAPA meetings are held every two years and are the basis for the proceedings series Contributions to Archaeozoology and Prehistoric Anthropology/Beiträge zur Archäozoologie und Prähistorischen Anthropologie. In order to celebrate GAPA’s anniversary next year, the results of our last meeting in Weimar will be presented as special volume, including also a Tabula Gratulatoria. GAPA members, associated researchers and further colleagues from archaeology/archaeological science/bioarchaeology are kindly invited to register to this list of congratulants. If you want to subscribe to the Tabula Gratulatoria, please let me know until 14th July.
