Conference, Toulouse (France),
Second International Conference on Predynastic and Early Dynastic Egypt
was held in Toulouse in September 2005. After the inaugural Krakow
International Conference (August 2002), the Toulouse Conference had
approximately 150 delegates from around the world delivering more than
50 lectures and commenting 20 posters. These scholars represented a
variety of disciplines and fields of study such as Egyptology, Archaeology,
Geo-archaeology or Physical Anthropology. The main thematic of the meeting
– The Origin of the State –
was split into different subjects defined by the members of the Scientific
Committee. The purpose of these thematic sessions was to avoid dispersion
of the interventions and to focus the papers on more precise points.
The latest field discoveries were presented during the breaks on posters
in the entrance hall.
