The world is full of messages. From text to images to sounds, messages dominate society, past and present. How can we explore this phenomenon in and through ancient history? What are media? Where is the message? AMPAH 2016, as usual, invites papers of all topics from postgraduate students of Classics and Ancient History, but in particular we would like to explore sending and receiving in the Ancient World whether through images and statues, through text, inscriptions, or the proverbial ‘writing on the wall’; from ‘putting on a show’, to performing in the public arena, how do we interpret their interactions? And how can we, as ancient historians, use media to ‘get our message across’?
