International Ancient Warfare Conference 2016 - 28-29-30/06/2016, Göteborg (Sweden)


The conference is aimed equally at postgraduate students, early career researchers and established academics. The intent is to facilitate a multi-disciplinary discussion and therefore researchers from any relevant discipline are encouraged to participate. Papers on any aspect of Ancient Warfare are sought. These will be of thirty minutes duration with ten minutes for comments/questions.

Ancient Warfare in this context is from the Prehistoric era until the ‘Fall of Constantinople’. However, papers that show a continuation from these periods to other periods, including those relating to future warfare, will be considered. Submissions relating to all cultures and regions of the globe will be considered.
