Classical scholarship for centuries tended to study rather the unique and/or spectacular aspects of ancient world in both literary and material culture. However, several archaeological projects have recently set up a new perspective in viewing the ancient society. The focus on the lower class reflects structure and complexity of the past societies. The “invisible” mass of people always somehow stands behind the activity of the elites. Such approach can be applied to all possible archaeological components separately and/or together from rural and urban settlement, industrial and religious facilities, resources and communications to burials, supplemented with historical, linguistic and art-historical studies reveal the way of living and thinking of ancient populations. We believe that any research as well as new theoretical approach can attribute to creation of innovative interpretations and a shift in our understanding of classical culture. Conceived broadly, this theme gives young scholars full play to present and discuss their opinions and thoughts applicable to the theme. Welcome are papers from postgraduates in all stages of their research, both theoretical and practical. We believe that this conference will allow participants to meet, collaborate and share their ideas in a helpful atmosphere.
