It is my pleasure to welcome you here on the occasion of the International Symposium, "Landscape Troia between Earth History and Culture". The topic Troia has stimulated many scientists, historians and experts in the history of arts to interpret data and adjust concepts regarding the de- velopment of early Troia. In the past two decades the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities has supported several research activities which are related to the Troia project. One of the aims of the archaeometry laboratory is to localize Aegean and Anatolian sources for the procurement of prehistoric metals such as gold, silver, lead, copper and tin. In particular in the Troad, numerous mining and smelting sites have been found and characterized, allowing one to investigate to which extent they might have been exploited by the acient Troians. When analytically comparing ores and slags with Troian metal artifacts, early trade connections can be traced. The landscape around Troia underwent rather fast and drastic changes.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The current volume comprises 25 archaeological science papers resulting from Korfmann's programme of fieldwork, originally presented at a conference ... . both the editors and publishers are to be congratulated on the rapidity with which this volume has appeared. ... As expected from a Springer publication, the volume is attractively presented and makes excellent use of colour illustrations. ... it will be a useful addition to libraries of institutions which have an interest in the east Mediterranean Bronze Age ... ." (Keith Wilkinson, The Holocene, Vol. 14 (5), 2004)
