„Crimes in the past“ at the 2019 EAA Meeting

GfA member Negahnaz Moghaddam is co-organiser of session #169 at the 25th Meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists (EAA), 4 to 7 September 2019 in Bern (Switzerland), entitled

Crimes in the past: archaeological and anthropological evidence

The session brings together new methodological approaches from forensic anthropology and archaeology, including ‚forensic archaeology‘. Archaeological evidence of criminal acts is more elusive than modern crime scenes, both for analytical and interprestational reasons. The aims of the session are to discuss the possible examples of crimes in the archaeological past, their detection and interpretation with the help of modern scientific methods, and to discuss how interdisciplinary approaches could be conducted in further research concerning “crimes of the past”.

Besides Ms Moghaddam, the session is organised by Tatiana Shvedchikova (Russia) and Pier Matteo Barone (Rome, Italy).
