Monumentality and the materiality of stone: can Indigenous traditions help us understand what Neolithic societies were thinking? This international symposium is an exploration of non-industrial cultures from both the Old World and the New World, with special focus on the significance of monumental building.

The PEOPLE of the GREAT STONES SYMPOSIUM welcomes contributions from researchers, scholars and technologists working across diverse disciplines, sites and practices. Typical presentation time for accepted papers is 25 minutes. At least one author must attend to present and for inclusion in the conference publication. Our program will include selected individual papers as well as an anticipated satellite program of events. Sessions will bring together scholars and practitioners representing different cultural perspectives. Presentations and subsequent publication will be in English.

CALL FOR PAPERS:
250-300 word abstracts of presentations should be submitted in English, in either Text, Word or PDF formats. Please include author's background, and any academic or institution affiliation.
