Connecting Networks October 15th-16th 2011
The 'Connecting Networks' workshop was organised by Dr Tim Kerig. in October 2011. The event gathered together friends and colleagues with the objective of sharing data, methods and results on European lithic exchange networks. The results of the two day event are currently in press as a symposium publication.
There was a one day session, which was open to the public. The programme is available here»
A workshop poster with further details is available here»
