Tumuli and Megaliths
May 25-29, 2021 : International Congress : Proença-a-Nova
Important Information and Dates
Due to the pandemic, it’s impossible to hold an in-person congress. Therefore, the Congress will be composed of videos, documentaries, and traditional presentations from the participants. So, it will be much more diversified.
You can watch all the videos on our Youtube channel from May 25 onwards, as we will keep the Youtube channel active in the future. You can use these videos for your classes, courses, for teaching and to disseminate to your friends, colleagues and family.
Feel free to download our book of abstracts free of charge and to buy the book that will come from the meeting in 2022.

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).
