Hoarding and Deposition in Europe


This Instrumentum meeting has been jointly organised by the Roman Finds Group, the Later Prehistoric Finds Group and Kings College, London.

Projects on hoards have looked at their composition and location. Recently excavated hoards also offer the chance to look at little studied aspects of hoarding as a depositional process, such as the environmental data. The conference will also explore other aspects of deposition.
