Beyond All Boundaries: Anatolia in the 1st Millennium B.C. - 17-18-19-20-21-22/06/2018, Ascona (Swi
Ancient Anatolia held a unique role as a bridge between Ancient Near Eastern and Classical Tradition, and because of this is singularly suited to interdisciplinary approaches, yet accounts of her cultures, languages, history and archaeology in the 1stmillennium BC remain separated by disciplinary boundaries between the respective academic fields. Further, many areas under consideration do not even belong to currently established fields of research. Differing methodologies in the disciplines involved, and a focus on minutiae rather than the larger picture mean that the potential of integrating the results of widely different modern research areas to form a coherent picture has been far from fully explored. This situation is mirrored by the available publications: outside of focus areas such as publications pertaining to a specific archaeological site, these are widely scattered and, moreover, often seriously out of date.
