Baltic Amber Bibliography
and Other Fossil Resins

Susan Ward Aber
Coordinator

The Baltic Amber Bibliography project was conceived at the September 2001 Baltic Amber in Natural Sciences, Archaeology and Applied Arts Conference held in Vilnius, Lithuania. The initial goal of this project was to identify Baltic amber and other fossil resin references and resources for the past ten years. The project will begin with resources in western and central Europe, as well as North America, but has potential to expand beyond this realm. Interested contributors were identified at the September conference, although we welcome others to participate in this worthwhile venture. Please contact the coordinator, Susan Ward Aber at abersusa@emporia.edu, or any of the contributors listed below for futher information.

Introduction

Studies of amber are interdisciplinary. Geologists and paleontologists are interested in amber because it is a fossil, evidence of prehistoric life. Archeologists look at trade routes and speculate on the past use of amber. Organic chemists investigate physical and chemical properties. Botanists and entomologists examine the botanical sources of amber and embalmed flora and fauna. Curators preserve and classify amber. Poets, authors, and screenwriters look to amber for artistic inspiration in print and film. Gemologists and dealers desire amber for its beauty and commercial value.

Amber studies are recorded and presented in a variety of languages from the many amber producing and consuming countries. The richness and thematic diversity of amber and fossil resin studies has created segregated bodies of research and literature. This project will attempt to overcome the fragmentation in fossil resin literature and resources by creating an online bibliographic clearinghouse. The project will unfold online for the benefit of the global amber community of scholars, artists, collectors, entrepreneurs, and all interested individuals.
