Environment and History in the Ancient Mediterranean

OrtInstitutum Romanum Finlandiae, Rome

Whether it is climate, or the use and overuse of timber resources, or
the extent and effects of urbanization, or a host of other issues, the
history of the Mediterranean environment in antiquity is full of
unresolved debates. The intention of this conference is scarcely to
resolve these debates but rather to redefine their terms and to think
about what progress we can hope to make in the immediate future. The
speakers are environmental scientists, historians and archaeologists
from some seven nations. All interested persons are welcome to attend.More information:
