The conference will deal with dwellings of all kinds (natural shelters, huts, houses, residences) in Western and Central Asia from the Palaeolithic to the Achaemenid Period, considering also the circumstances under which they were created, and the living conditions, which they provided in return. In line with ARWA’s broad understanding of archaeology, contributions from all disciplines dealing with the cultural history of Western and Central Asia are welcome. We are looking for original papers, which either deal with the form and structure of houses and other dwelling units, or which address material evidence and methodologies used to study circumstances, conditions of life and diets.
