The workshop aims to stimulate new discussion and widen the interpretive possibilities for women's movement, by considering how biological and social relatedness were  experienced in prehistory.

International participants from archaeology, anthropology and related disciplines will meet in Rome to explore how data from biological evidence and archaeological material culture can be combined, with relevance to issues of gender, identity, and kinship.
