24th – 25th November 2022

About the conference:

This year's conference focuses on small finds, those types and categories of finds often presented summarily in the publication of research results; those which are considered uniform, chronologically indeterminate or difficult to determine, insufficiently known. Every research we come across finds that, at first glance, do not offer more profound knowledge or any significant conclusion about communities who left them behind. However, researchers often encounter new questions in specific cases when processing such findings. They can also notice certain deviations from the usual picture of the finds in question. For example, more ceramic vessels at the site than is usual in the period and/or area in question; the range of certain finds differs from the expected one, a find of this type in an unusual context, a new pattern of occurrence of a certain type of finds on the site, a morphological feature not yet observed and/or any deviation encountered by the researcher. We are particularly interested in such phenomena or cases that indicate the existence of certain communication paths or connections between different communities or cultural circles in the period from Antiquity to the Middle Ages in the Carpathian Basin.



There will be no registration fee, organizers will provide food/refreshments.

We kindly ask you to confirm your attendance to email [javascript protected email address] comas soon as possible and to provide us with a summary until 1st of July, 2022.
