Session details
SESSION THEME – Comparing Archaeology Across Regions and Periods
SESSION FORMAT – oral presentation (max. 15 minutes) and poster
SESSION TEXT:
Relatively hardly known gunflint industry is one of the most interesting subjects in military and economic history of Europe between the late 16th and mid 19th century. Studies of this issue need cooperation of petrologists, archaeologists and historians. Till now only history of gunflint industry from British and French empires was studied more extensively. In many other regions this subject was negligent. Only lately it started to be more often undertaken by researchers.
This session calls for contributions that focus on the following research issues:
– Identification of raw material sources
– The role of physical properties in raw material choice
– Raw material mining strategies
– Gunflints production and processing techniques
– Regional gunflint typologies
– Distribution systems
– Use-wear analysis of gunflints
– Gunflints in research on battlefields

SincerelyYours,
