Debates in Classical and Mediterranean Archaeology

Current Issues in Classical, Mediterranean and Near Eastern Archaeology/Ancient Worlds Seminar

The study of the ancient worlds of the Mediterranean and Near East is often undertaken in fragments, also at Leiden University. Topographical boundaries (Rome, Greece, Anatolia. The Levant, Iran, Egypt, North Africa, Western Europe) tend to obstruct our view of the larger picture, as do, even more seriously, the disciplinary boundaries that have grown between the study of language, history, material culture and art. This Current Issues Seminar tries to overcome all these artificial divides by providing a forum for all those studying the archaeology and history of the Ancient Circum-Mediterranean lands in Leiden.
