SASCAR, The Southeast Aegean/Southwest Coastal Anatolian Region: Material Evidence and Cultural Iden

The Italian Archaeological School at Athens presents the SASCAR International Conference, which will take place at the School from May 12th to May 14th, 2016. The SASCAR International Conference is focused on the Southeast Aegean/Southwest Coastal Anatolian Region and the neighboring areas during the Early and Middle Bronze Age periods. It is an event organized by Toula Marketou and Salvatore Vitale and sponsored by the Italian Archaeological School at Athens and the Institute for Aegean Prehistory (INSTAP).

This conference is the first in a series of three events focused on material evidence and cultural identity in the Southeast Aegean/Southwest Coastal Anatolian Region (SASCAR) during the Bronze Age.

The SASCAR may be defined as the area between Kasos, Karpathos, and Rhodes to the south, Astypalaia to the west, Samos to the north, and Miletus and Tavşan Adası to the east. As a major passageway between Asia Minor, Cyprus, and the Near East on one side and the western Aegean on the other, the SASCAR developed from the Early Bronze Age (EBA) a dynamic and distinct cultural assemblage, which included important sites such as the Samian Heraion, Miletus, the “Serraglio”, and Ialysos.
