The Archaeological Conference of Central Germany is hosted annually by the State Office for Heritage Management and Archaeology Saxony-Anhalt. It is an international meeting which takes up a current topic and promotes a scientific discussion by consulting and contrasting the expertise of the relevant specialists in order to gain fundamental new insights.
This year’s conference is devoted to the topic "Surplus without the State". The conference aims to take a comparative approach on forms of socio-political organisation in Prehistory in a global perspective. These social structures of prehistoric societies, which had reached exceptional economic, demographic, architectural and ceremonial achievements, would not match the »classic« definition of a state. Of course the topic has been a recurrent implicit subject of prehistoric as a matter but has, up to now, never been in its direct focus.
In this sense, the conference also aims to address the reasons for growth and decline of certain forms of socio-political organisation. Case studies will be presented from Europe, Africa, Asia as well as North and South America.
