INFO: web – call




Incense was one of the most important luxury items of trade in antiquity. The incense trade flourished from the 8th century BC to approximately the 2nd century AD and linked the incense producing areas of Arabia and Africa with markets as far and wide as the Mediterranean, the Levant, Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Indus and China. This trade led to many wide scale cultural, social, political and economic changes. With this special session we would like to investigate the socio-political and economic implications of this trade on the Red Sea regions, its people and its landscape. We welcome interested researchers from all disciplines to contribute to the discussion and envisage that this session will provide a stimulating setting for enriching discussions and helping promote studies of the impact of the incense trade within a multidisciplinary research arena.
