Call For Papers:
International Congress on Lusitanian Amphorae – Production and Diffusion
Tróia, Portugal – 10-13th October 2013
Even though a number of Lusitanian amphora production sites are fairly well known today, and sites like Tróia had a large production capacity for fish products exported in those amphorae, the diffusion of these containers is not well documented.
A review by Portuguese archaeologists of the principal Lusitanian amphorae products, as well as a workshop featuring samples of these amphorae, will contribute to better understanding of these containers. Invited scholars from Italy, Belgium, France, and Spain will present their findings on the long-distance Lusitanian amphorae trade. Presentations from other investigators who wish to contribute to an improved understanding of the role of Lusitanian amphorae in the Roman economy are necessary and welcome.
