From invisible to visible: new data and methods for the archaeology of infant and child burials in pre-Roman Italy

International Conference
24-25 April 2017
Organised by Jacopo Tabolli (Trinity College Dublin)

 

The archaeological record of infant (up to 2 years) and child (c. 2–11/12 years) burials remains elusive. In recent years the topic of infant and child burials in antiquity, and especially in the 2nd and 1st millennia BC, has been increasingly addressed in international conferences, monographs, collected volumes and journals, yet only very rarely is the complex and rich picture from pre-Roman Italy included in the analysis. Conversely, particularly in the last two decades, field archaeology in Italy has brought to light an impressive quantity of new data related to infant and child burials.

This conference aims to disseminate these new and important data while developing a robust methodology for the study of infant and child burials. In addition, it seeks to situate infant and child burials within the world of the adults, while at the same time grounding them within the special sphere of childhood.
