Byzantine water and engineering in Constantinople and Thessaloniki

Saturday, May 20, 2017

“Byzantine water and engineering in Constantinople and Thessaloniki: new results and approaches” is a conference organized by Prof James Crow (University of Edinburgh) and Dr Pagona Papadopoulou (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki).

In Thessaloniki and Constantinople there are remains of extensive water supply systems. This Late Roman and Byzantine Infrastructure is largely unrecognized by scholars working in the fields of ancient and medieval urbanism and engineering. Recent multi-disciplinary research has progressed our understanding of these cities’ systems. This conference aims to combine and communicate the latest knowledge of the great achievements of Byzantine engineers.
