Sponsored by: The International Association for Classical Archaeology (AIAC) as well as the Archaeological Institutes of the Universities of Cologne and Bonn would like to invite you to the XIXth International Congress of Classical Archaeology with the theme: 'Archaeology and Economy in the Ancient World'. We are looking forward to fine presentations, lively exchange and fruitful discussions and welcoming you to Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium and Bonna.
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.
The 19th International Congress of Classical Archaeology 2018 will focus on the primary theme “Archaeology and Economy in the Ancient World”. In fact, economic aspects permeate all areas of public and private life in ancient societies, whether in urban development, in religion or art, in housing or in death.
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.
