Dear colleagues and friends,

We are happy to announce the upcoming conference titled Revolution wood! Schöningen and the earliest wooden artefacts of humankind. International conference celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Schöningen spears. The conference will be held from 24th until 26th of October 2024 in Hannover and Schöningen, Germany, as well as online (program see here).

During the program, we will not only look back at the long research history of Schöningen, but primarily we will present new results from ongoing research at Schöningen, will hear from speakers researching wooden artefacts all around the world including novel methodologies, and learn about hunting and innovations during the Pleistocene. In the Research Museum Schöningen we will demonstrate our research approach on original hunting weapons from the Spear Horizon and discuss with you and other colleagues. We have a few places available at the conference venue (first come, first served) while online participation will be possible too. Registration for either is open until the 30th of August. Please send your personal registration to the following address clearly stating whether you would like to attend in-person or online:
