Cities, Territories and Identities: 1st International Conference – Roman and Late Antique Thrace

7–10 October 2016, Plovdiv, Bulgaria

The National Archaeological Institute with Museum at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, in partnership with the Ephorate of Antiquities of Rhodope (Greece) and Istanbul University, has the pleasure of inviting you to an international conference specially dedicated to Roman and Late Antique Thrace (RaLATh). The event will be appropriately hosted in the very heart of the region – Plovdiv, the descendant of ancient Philippopolis.

The conference theme focuses on the cities of Thrace, their territories and the expressions of local identity in Roman and Late Antique times. We aim to bring together archaeologists, historians, numismatists, epigraphists, art historians, and scholars from any related fields, for an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the region. Contributors are invited to discuss all aspects of urban life in Roman and Late Antique Thrace. Relevant areas of research include, but are not limited to: settlement patterns, civic space planning, architecture, city economy, religion, festivals. Selected proceedings of the conference will be published before the next edition of the event in autumn 2017.
