Archaeology of the Invisible: Forced Migration and Modeling in the Ancient Near East and Beyond

Conference organized by Dr. Simone Mühl (CAS Young Center/LMU).

03.06.2019 – 04.06.2019

Flight and migration seem to be traceless in archaeological contexts, although they formed political and social realities throughout the history of the Ancient Near East. The workshop will discuss models addressing forced migration by bringing together archaeologists and historians, thus contributing to new insights into ancient modeling strategies.

Participants among others: Aaron A. Burke (UCLA), Jesper Eidem (The Netherlands Institute for the Near East, Leiden), Maja Gori (Bochum), Georg Neumann (Tübingen/FU Berlin), Caitlin Chaves Yates (Boston).

Evening Lecture on 3 June at 5 p.m.:

Prof. Dr. Michael D. Roaf – "Identifying Identity in the Ancient Near East"

Michael D. Roaf is Professor em. of Near Eastern Archaeology at LMU.
