Call for Papers: 19th International Congress of Classical Archaeology
The 19th International Congress of Classical Archaeology 2018 will be held in Cologne and Bonn, 22-26 May 2018 and focus on the primary theme „Archaeology and Economy in the Ancient World“.
The congress, organized every five years by the Associazone Internazionale di Archeologia Classica (AIAC), provides the most important platform of exchange for all disciplines that deal with Greco-Roman civilization and their neighbouring cultures from the Aegean Bronze Age to the end of Late Antiquity.
Research on ancient economy has long played a significant role in ancient history. Increasingly in the last decades, awareness has grown in archaeology that especially the material culture of ancient societies offers excellent approaches for the study of structure, performance and dynamics of ancient economic systems and economic processes. The objective of this congress will be to understand economy as a central element of classical societies and analyse its mutual interaction with current geographical, political, social, religious and cultural backgrounds. The theme of the congress is therefore addressed to all disciplines of classical archaeology and related sciences.
The call for papers closes on August 31st 2017.
