The department of Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology at Birmingham is delighted to host the first in a series of annual colloquia in Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology, bringing together four Midlands departments (Universities of Birmingham, Leicester, Nottingham and Warwick). This venture is picking up a past tradition, the Midlands Classics Colloquium, which last convened in 2000. Eighteen years later, we are pleased to come together once more. There is already a collaborative framework in place under the Midlands3Cities AHRC doctoral training partnership, and this annual colloquium aims to strengthen our research network and encourage collaboration between researchers in Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology in the Midlands.
