A workshop devoted to parallel spatial concepts and organized by Svend Hansen
and Michael Meyer was held for Research Group A-I of the Excellence Cluster
TOPOI on 15–17 March 2010 at the Topoi-Haus of the Freie Universität Berlin.
The 23 contributions shared a common theme: potential insights into archeology
in light of parallel forms of spatial perception and usage in societies.
Analysis can be conducted of such parallelisms existing between diverse
identity groups as well as between the traditional and newly emerging spatial
usage of a collective entity.
