New Pespectives on the Bronze Age. Proceedings of the 13th Nordic Bronze Age Symposium held in Gothenburg 9th to 13th June 2015. 2017, 355-362
When we started planning this session proposal it was our intention to provide a forum in which to discuss new results and perspectives on the very old question of long-distance connections and exchange throughout Europe and the Mediterranean. Participants were asked to first consider provenance analysis of both raw materials and manufactured goods as a means to shed light on mobility and connectivity between Bronze Age societies. Secondly, they were asked to explore the implications of long-distance connectivity at both a local and regional level. The call was well received, resulting in a series of very interesting papers followed by lively discussion in a crowded room at the Bronze Age Symposium in Gothenburg.
