Gemstones in the First Millennium AD

Gemstones in the First Millennium AD

Mines, Trade, Workshops and Symbolism

Researchers from different fields like archaeology, history, philology and
natural sciences present their studies on ancient gemstones. Using precious
minerals as an example, trade flows and craftsmanship, but also utilisation and
perception are discussed in a cross-cultural and diachronic approach. The
present volume aims at three main questions concerning gemstones in
archaeological and historical contexts: »Mines and Trade«, »Gemstone Working« as
well as »The Value and the Symbolic Meaning(s) of Gemstones«.
This volume contains the proceedings of the conference »Gemstones in the first
Millennium AD« held in autumn 2015 in Mainz, Germany, within the scope of the
BMBF-funded project »Weltweites Zellwerk – International Framework«.
