Call for papers: International Conference CELTIC GOLD – Mainz (17th-19th September 2020)

Dear colleagues,
The ANR-DFG project CELTIC GOLD (2017-2020), based in Toulouse and Mannheim, invites to its concluding conference at Mainz. The venue is Landesmuseum Mainz. We want to discuss aspects on archaeometry and technology of La Tène gold and its setting.
As it has been the aim of our project, we intend to bring together different perspectives and approaches on La Tène gold objects encompassing archaeometry, technology, as well as art, communication and social structures from the 5th century BC to the 1st century AD. In addition, we would also like to link up with the neighbouring regions and periods in order to better understand the connections, influences and contact networks throughout Europe.

The meeting starts Thursday, 17 September, in the afternoon and ends on Saturday, 19 September, at noon. Oral contributions (20 min + discussion time) will be presented in thematic sessions. Posters will be welcomed, too. The conference language is English.

The contribution proposals, including your name, institution, presentation/poster title and one-page abstract, should be mailed to by the end of March 2020. The scientific board will examine the proposal and compose the programme.
A conference fee of 40,– € will be charged (students & jobless 20,– €); persons presenting lectures or posters are exempt. Communications and posters will be published in a peer
reviewed conference volume. The deadline for the articles will be 1st December 2020. For detailed information on the Celtic Gold Project, the conference venue and programme please check If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. We are very much looking forward to hearing from you.
