The 5th International Workshop on the Archaeology of Roman Construction:
Arquelogía de la Construcción V: Man-made materials, engineering &
infrastructure will take place on 12 April 2015, at the University of Oxford (Ioannou Centre for Classical and Byzantine Studies).

This is the fifth in the series of international workshops on the Archaeology of Roman Construction, following those organised by the Archaeological Institute of Merida (2007), the University of Siena (2008), and the École Normale Supérieure of Paris (2010), and continued at the University of Padua in 2012. The broad focus of this workshop will be on
the development of specific technologies for solving constructional or structural problems, including the production and supply of man-made materials, the contribution of engineering and machines to the functioning of building sites, and the nature and division of labour these require.

Registration is open until 4 April, and is essential.
