September 28, 2005

The German Society for the Promotion of Underwater Archaeology (DEGUWA) sincerely invites to the "In Poseidons Reich XI" conference, which is organised in conjunction with the Institute for Archaeological Sciences at the Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe University of Frankfurt a. M. It will be held on 17th – 19th February 2006 in the rooms of the latter institution. The topic is:
TRANSPORT CERAMICS: An article of mass production as key to the history of economics and trade in the ancient world.

We encourage contributions on classifications, petrological analyses on provenience, epigraphic features etc. with the aim to elucidate the economic organisation of the ancient Mediterranean. This will be an interdisciplinary conference in two respects: Firstly it aims to splice the humanities with the sciences. Secondly it will be a venue for archaeologists who study places of amphora & pithoi production and discard on land and for those who study the same commodities under water as cargoes of shipwrecks.

If you intend to submit a paper or just participate, please refer to the following address. The closing date for announcing contributions is 15.11.2005.
