The 19th International Congress of Classical Archaeology. Archaeology and Economy in the Ancient World which will be held in Cologne and Bonn, 22 – 26 May 2018.
We invite you to participate in this session by submitting your abstracts for a presentation of 20 min. The submission module will be open until August 31th.
Research on ancient mining has evolved in recent decades from the traditional technological studies to a broader historical view. Nowadays, the study of Roman mining is carried out taking into account its territorial dimension, social and economic implications and juridical aspects.
The purpose of this session is to bring together the different visions of Roman mining that are currently being developed in European research. We would like to create a space for discussion on ancient mining landscapes which addresses the current debate on the impact of mining on the economy of the Roman Empire. From a territorial approach we intend to advance in the study of the forms of work organization in the mines, the structure of settlement, and to understand how mining evolves between the end of the Republic and the High Empire.
