The 1st Colloquium on Roman Crete Conference will be held at The University of Nottingham, United Kingdom. The selected theme is “The Enigma of Late Hellenistic and Roman Crete: Unanswered Questions”.
The Colloquium on Roman Crete Conference is dedicated to discussing the late Hellenistic through to the Late Antiquity periods on Crete. The aim of the conference is to bring together interested parties from around the world to present their research, network and discuss opportunities for future collaborative research.
It is 34 years since the publication of Ian F. Sanders’ research on Roman Crete. His work presented a tantalizing view of this island province. In the years that have followed there has been more archaeological excavation, surveys and research and there is more material and data available to study. Even so Roman Crete remains something of an enigma and the role that the province played in the Roman Empire remains undetermined.
As this is the first conference solely dedicated to the topic of Roman Crete the theme that has been chosen is “The Enigma of Late Hellenistic and Roman Crete: Unanswered Questions”.
The conference will be held on the University of Nottingham campus between 18 and 19 November 2016. Registration for the conference is now open with a discount applicable on registrations made before 30 September 2016. A conference reception and dinner is being organised for the evening of Friday 18 November.
Note for speakers: The Call for Papers period has now closed and work is in progress in arranging the conference programme and location of the sessions on the University of Nottingham campus. If you have missed the Call for Papers period and are interested in speaking or submitting a written contribution please contact the Conference Secretary Michael Curtis to discuss what options may be available to you.
