AAIA 40th Anniversary Conference: "Mobility and Settlement in the Eastern Mediterranean focusse
To celebrate our 40th anniversary, the Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens is hosting an international conference "Mobility and Settlement in the Eastern Mediterranean". The interaction between the various modes of mobility will form the main focus of the conference. Is it possible to identify and define cultural changes that reflect variations in mobility? Can established paths be identified, and if so, how did they change through time? Did the unequal and mutable intensity of interconnectivity play a role in rendering some communities more resilient than others through times of stress?
