Following on the success of “Masons at Work”(held in spring 2012, and published as  http://www.sas.upenn.edu/ancient/publica...), the symposium aims to assemble specialists to examine building practices in the pre-industrial world, with an emphasis on Greek, Roman, Byzantine, medieval, and pre-modern Islamic architecture. In addition to invited speakers, we are soliciting 20-minute papers that examine the problems which pre-modern masons commonly encountered - and the solutions they developed - in the process of design and construction.  Evidence may be drawn from a variety of sources, but we encourage studies based on the analysis of well-preserved buildings.
