Pre- and Proto-Historic societies developed different ways to treat their dead. One of the most distinctive was offering them to earth using positive structures as artificial hills such as tumuli, mounds, and kurgans, of circular shape, are the most common across Eurasia, despite enclosing different rituals, suggesting strong structural and ritual similarities despite the geographic and chronological distances.
In the International Congress Tumuli e Megaliths in Eurasia, we aim to discuss the question: why did people so distant in space and time, build the last address for their dead in such a similar shape?
We invite podium and poster presentation focusing from the western megalithism to the central European and Asian Kurgan, and the classic Mediterranian graves. We will give preference to groundbreaking results, interdisciplinary and novel methodological approaches, regional synthesis, and innovative ways of relating them with other realities (enclosures, cromlechs, menhirs, stelae and rock carvings).
