Dear Archaeologists, Entomologists, Archaeozoologist, Archaeoparasitologists and friends,

2nd announcement and call for papers for the 3rd International Conference in Funerary Archaeoentomology that will take place in the city centre of Bordeaux, on the 5th June 2019.

Funerary Archaeoentomology, as defined by Jean-Bernard Huchet in 1996, is the use of information provided by the insect fauna associated with archaeological human remains in order to define the peri- and post- mortem events or the funerary practice. This discipline has a common theoretical and practical background with Forensic Entomology but it differs for the aims. Till now the discipline has been used in a wide spectrum of archaeological studies from the Egyptian and South American mummies to the remains of the WWI soldiers.

The conference will be followed by the 16th meeting of the European Association for Forensic Entomology (EAFE) (…-bordeaux-france/), 5th (evening) – 7th June 2019. On the 8th a visit of Bordeaux region will take place.
