      Ancient Cyprus Symposium

      Keynote Lecture: Friday, November 24, 6 pm - Cargoes of Fate: Insights into Seaborne Trade Through Shipwreck Archaeology in Cyprus

      Discover how innovative digital technologies have opened new paths to both excavating and studying these ancient shipwrecks, and how this furthers our understanding of the late Classical period in the Aegean and the eastern Mediterranean.


      Symposium: Saturday, November 25, 9 am - 5 pm - Thalassa: Underwater Archaeology in the Ancient East Mediterranean

      Find out what innovations in underwater archaeology and new approaches to maritime connectivity are telling us about the ancient east Mediterranean. Once one of the most intensely travelled seascapes on the planet – and still one of the busiest today – ports and harbours from Egypt and the Levant to Cyprus and Crete and Rhodes supported constant mobility and trade. While these patterns have long been the subject of scholarly interest, recent advances have offered fresh observations on these significant seascapes. Specialists working at the cutting-edge of these pioneering developments bring you a day of engaging presentations and lively discussion.
