This interdisciplinary symposium aims to bring together scholars of different disciplines and specialisations who are interested in various aspects of medicine in the prehistoric, ancient, and medieval world as broadly defined.
We are delighted to report that support has been overwhelming and that we have attracted papers or participation from scholars in thirteen different countries: Austria, Canada, the Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Slovakia, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the United States of America. 
We are pleased to inform you that we have received 34 papers and 3 keynote lectures presenting various aspects of prehistoric, ancient and medieval medicine. New research projects, both from the field and laboratory-based, together with more theoretical and/or methodological approaches, as well as new methods and their applications will be described. The geographical spread of the topics is from the Near East through Europe to Mesoamerica.
