3rd CONFERENCE

KAŠTELA-CROATIA, 1st-4th of JUNE 2017

EXPLORING THE NEIGHBORHOOD:
THE ROLE OF CERAMICS IN UNDERSTANDING PLACE
IN THE HELLENISTIC WORLD


One key feature of the Hellenistic world is its cosmopolitan nature that was created by decades of interaction between peoples from different regions with distinctive cultural backgrounds. In this era of ever-increasing connectivity, at both regional and inter-regional levels, material culture can reflect the movement of people who took with them their own identities and attitudes. In many cases, these features were either retained or melded with local traditions into unique regional forms within the Hellenistic koine. Since ceramic shapes may be related to particular cultural activities and wares may be connected to certain regions, research on ceramic types and their distributions over a wide geographical area can reveal the behavior and movement of those who created and/or consumed them.
The papers presented at the conference offered illuminating perspectives on these complex phenomena throughout the Hellenistic Mediterranean and beyond.
