LAC 2022 - Iași, Romania

The city of Iași  lies only 16 km away from the European Union”s border with the Republic of Moldova. Its history can be traced back to the beginning of the fifteenth century, and it  was the capital of the Principality of Moldavia from the sixteenth century to the middle of the nineteenth century. Today it is the second largest city of Romania, an important economic hub, and home to one of Romania”s largest academic communities.

Consortium

The consortium that came together to welcome the participants at the seventh edition of the Landscape Archaeology Conference is composed by:

 

One of the strongest connections between all these different institutions and disciplines is the need to understand the human being not as a rational, self-contained construct, but as a link within the network that constitutes the physical world.

Our preoccupations include

  • Use of state-of-the-art research methodologies and equipment for the prospection of archaeological sites in order to enlighten, through different geophysical methods, soil physical abnormalities, due to the presence of archaeological data;
  • Execution of small- and large-scale surveys of archaeological landscapes through archaeological excavations;
  • The study a broad range of technologies, behaviours and artefact types from prehistory to the contemporary past, through archaeometry, experimental archaeology and ethnoarchaeology approaches;
  • Bioarchaeological investigations of the human – environment relationship through the lens of archaeozoology, paleobotany and physical anthropology;
  • Geographical approaches of the mutual influence between humans and landscape with a special focus on soil science, geomorphology and human geography;
  • Construction of a formative framework with a special stress on ideas such as durability, sustainability, circular economy, healthy life, environmental protection, protection of cultural , material and non-material heritage;
  • Development of the scientific tools for identifying, analyzing and assessing the key factors of the economic, social, and natural environment , life quality,  and cultural heritage;
  • Dissemination of the research results to the public through as many channels as possible, but with a focus especially on digital technologies and direct interactions through museal methods.
