The AWRANA conference will be hosted in the Centre Cultural and Memorial el Born in Barcelona! Converted by the city into a forum for meetings and debates, a space for learning and reflecting on the memory of the facts and events that form human culture, these places represent an ideal location for the congress. It also houses a unique archaeological site, exceptional for its size, state of conservation and presented historical sequence.

Muchas gracias el Born CCM!


Welcome to the next conference of the Association of Archaeological Wear and Residues – AWRANA 2022 !

The 3rd Conference of the Association of Archaeological Wear and Residue Analysts (AWRANA) – corresponding to the 14th International meeting focused on traceology – will be held in Barcelona between the 5th and the 8th of April 2022.

Originally scheduled for spring 2021, this conference had to be postponed to 2022 due to the Covid-19 pandemic crisis. This decision was made taking into account the importance of having an in-person meeting, not only to foster scientifically fruitful interactions, but also to provide a spontaneous, warm and friendly atmosphere after two years of restrictions and limited social events. We strongly believe that Barcelona will offer the utmost conditions for a completely safe and high-yielding event. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
