We invite all interested to read a new article which presents the first results of both dryland and underwater investigations at the multi-period Garnys riverine site situated on the Žeimena River in eastern Lithuania, which appeared in the Journal of Archaeological Science: Reports!!!
EXARC/EAC held its first fully hybrid conference this year at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń, Poland on 1-3 May. The conference was a huge success. Among the many exciting presentations, we were pleased to present the first results of traceological studies of the wooden artefacts from site Sventoji in Lithuania: Traceology on Prehistoric Wooden Artefacts. Is it Possible? By Grzegorz Osipowicz (PL), Justyna Orłowska (PL), Giedrė Piličiauskienė (LT), Gytis Piličiauskas (LT). Right now, its time to prepare a nice article! 🙂
The last stage of our December tour was a visit to the National Museum of Lithuania in Vilnius, where we realised the second stage of sampling unique wooden artefacts discovered at a Subneolithic site in Sventoji for the anthracological analyses and radiocarbon dating. It is a supplementing study to our main project focused on bone artefacts. It was a lot of very precise and stressful work, but we are sure that the results of these studies will be stunning 🙂
Now we are finally back in Poland. Happy Christmas and a lot of joy in the coming year to all of You:)
In the second half of December, we visited beautiful Tallinn in Estonia, where we analyzed bone artifacts from the Mesolithic site of Pulli. We thank the staff of the Archaeological research collection, Tallinn University, for their warm welcome and all their help 🙂
