More Late Antiquity

The University of Michigan and the DAI (German Archaeological Institute) are co-hosting an international symposium on Archaeology and the Cities of Asia Minor in Late Antiquity in January.  The papers look quite interesting — although perhaps a bit fewer papers on the countryside, “town and country”, or the role of non-urban places in the development of the urban world that I would have thought.  While urban life in Late Antique Asia Minor certainly represented the physical continuation of the “ancient world”, it is becoming increasingly difficult to imagine the transformation of cities in Late Antiquity without considering the city’s relationship in a complex network of non-urban places (villages, towns, villas, monasteries, pilgrimage sites, et c.) as well.  The website included a handy list of the represented Late Antique sites in Asia Minor with short discussions of the sites during Late Antiquity, bibliography, and links the to their official webpages.  I hope that they plan to publish their proceedings!
