May 12 and 13, 2022 | 9.00-13.30 CET

Webinar CNR ISPC on Air


The webinar, organised by the CNR ISPC researchers Massimo Botto and Tatiana Pedrazzi, is an interesting opportunity to explore one of the research themes tackled within the PRIN 2017 “People of the Middle Sea. Innovation and Integration in Ancient Mediterranean (1600-500 BC)”. Thanks to the participation of some of the most prominent specialists in the discipline, the amphora productions along the coast of the Syro-Palestinian area in the Late Bronze and Iron Age will be discussed with a focus on the transitional period from the 2nd to the 1st millennium BC, when the Phoenician irradiation in the Mediterranean and along the Atlantic coasts of the Iberian Peninsula and Morocco started.

Due to the approach of the various lectures focusing on the state of the art in the areas concerned, the webinar is not only addressed to the experts in the field and scholars, but also to a wider audience of students and interested people who want to enhance the knowledge of international trade between East and West in historical periods before the rise of Carthage and Rome in the Mediterranean.

The webinar will be held mainly in English, Italian and Spanish on the Zoom platform.
