XVI Suomalais-venäläinen arkeologisymposiumi - The XVI Finnish-Russian Archaeological Symposium

Suomalais-venäläinen arkeologisymposiumi on kansainvälinen tieteellinen tapaaminen, jonka avulla välitetään uutta tietoa arkeologiassa ja pidetään yllä tutkijoiden välisiä yhteyksiä.

The Finnish-Russian Archaeological Symposium aims to advance scientific research and support connections between researchers.

Teema / Theme: Materiality and Objects: Multi-disciplinary Approaches to Archaeological Material and Contexts

Vuoden 2019 symposiumin teemana ovat löydöt ja niiden tutkimusmetodit. Symposiumin järjestävät yhteistyössä Museovirasto, Suomen muinaismuistoyhdistys ja Suomalais-venäläinen arkeologian alan työryhmä. Symposiumi pidetään Hämeen linnan auditoriossa 10-11.10.2019. Esitelmäpäiviä täydentää ekskursiopäivä Hämeenlinnan ympäristössä 12.10.2019. Symposiumissa esitellään uutta tutkimusta Luoteis-Venäjällä ja Suomessa. Symposiumin työskentelykielenä on englanti.

The symposium 2019 covers all fresh archaeological and multi-disciplinary approaches. The contextualization of finds is understood in a broad meaning: subsistence and everyday life in prehistory and early history, ideologies and worldviews in ancient and more recent times, occasional events of the past like crises and disasters. Organizers of the symposium are The Finnish Heritage Agency, The Finnish Antiquarian Society and Finlyandsko-rossijskaya rabochaya gruppa po sotrudnichestvu v oblasti arheologii. The symposium takes place in the Häme Castle, Hämeenlinna on Thursday 10th and Friday 11th October. In addition, there is a bus excursion to archaeological sites on Saturday 12th October. Working language of the symposium is English (with exception of 1-2 oral presentations in Russian or Finnish).
