Later Prehistoric Finds Group Conference: Crafting Identities: Making and using objects in the Bronze and Iron Ages

Craft and the transformation of raw materials into objects were integral aspects of prehistoric life. This conference examines crafting processes in detail and investigates the complex ways these processes and resulting artefacts contributed to the identities of groups and individuals.
