Holism and the Ancient World. Combined Approaches in Archaeology, Numismatics, and Beyond -03/03/2018, Oxford (England)





The Oxford University Archaeological and Numismatic Societies are pleased to co-host their student conference. The theme, “Holism and the Ancient World”, invites undergraduate and postgraduate students to take a multi-faceted or interdisciplinary approach as they present and exchange innovative research and ideas on the past.


The material culture of ancient civilizations presents an immediate connection between students and their understanding of the ancient world. Sculpture, painting, and architecture, among other media, prove essential in illuminating socio-political, military, and religious practices. Coins are no different in this respect; their imagery, composition and context provide further insight into a culture’s economy, politics, and trade networks.
