Trading Spaces:

The Archaeology of Interaction, Migration and Exchange


University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada

November 7-9, 2013

The Chacmool Conference this year is focused on the understanding of cultures worldwide and across time through interpretation and context of the movement of people, materials and ideas. The theme allows for exploration of topics such as conflict and interaction spheres, landscape archaeology, trade, and of course, interaction, migration, and exchange. The interaction, migration, and the exchange of goods and ideas between people have been an effective adaptive strategy as well as being an integral part of human civilization, from hunter-gatherer groups to the metropolises that dot the globe today. These are undeniably important topics for future and current consideration in archaeology.
