The Impact of the Ancient City project will hold its first workshop on Friday 29th September 2017. The project aims to assess the urban evolution of Greco-Roman cities that surround the Mediterranean. The first workshop will focus on North Africa and al-Andalus, where there will be discussions on recent work in Volubilis and the afterlife of the Roman city in North Africa and Southern Spain.  

The workshop will be held at the McDonald Institute Seminar Room, consisting of six presentations between 9 a.m. and 6.30 p.m..

Participants are asked to arrive by 9 a.m. for registration, ready for talks to begin at 9:15.

Tea, coffee and juice will be available throughout the day and there will be a one-hour lunch break during which sandwiches and snacks will be on offer. Please let us know if you plan to attend by Monday 25th September.
