21st Symposium on Mediterranean Archaeology

Congrès, colloques, réunions


21-23 septembre 2017



The main theme of the 2017 meeting will be “Nautical and Underwater Archaeology for the study of Mediterranean societies”.


Since prehistoric times the Mediterranean has been acting as a locale for interaction between groups inhabiting regions that are now studied mainly within the different sub-fields of ancient studies and archaeology. In the recent years, however, the development of research techniques and analytical models of archaeological evidence have identified similar historical paths that are similar if not, in some cases, common to these different areas of the ancient world from the West (Iberian peninsula) to the East (Anatolia and Levant) from the North (Europe, Black Sea Coast) to the South (Maghreb and Egypt).


However, through this Symposium we would like to emphazise the maritime aspect related with this connection. The Mediterranean Sea and his shorelines rather than a frontier favoured connectivity among the social groups that populated it.


In addition to traditional issues related to archeological finds in various parts of the Mediterranean, in 2017 the focus will be on new ideas for the conservation and management of sites of historical and cultural heritage.
