Historical and Archaeological Atlas of Ancient Asia Minor Project

International symposium
Université de Franche-Comté/ Institut des Sciences et Techniques de l’Antiquité
Besançon (France)
November 26th and 27th, 2010

Call for papers (deadline: June 30th, 2010)

Since the nineteenth century, numerous and varied historical and archaeological works have been launched in Asia Minor – essentially in Turkey – by international teams, but the scientific data, which are complex and numerous too, have been published in total dispersion. The Anatolian area is a crossroad of several famous civilizations and of many populations and cultures (Hittites, Luwians, Phrygians, Lydians, Urartu kingdom for example) from Europe (Thracians, Celts, Greeks, Macedonians, Romans), from Asia (Persians, Mesopotamians) and from Africa (Egypt), often in connection with city-states of Mesopotamia and the Near-East, with ancient Iran, the Caucasian area, Egypt and Greece.

The meeting that will be held in Besançon (France) on November 26th and 27th, 2010 is open to all the persons who want to carry on the researches on ancient Asia Minor differently, with a collective and a positive spirit. Yet the Historical and Archaeological Atlas of Ancient Asia Minor and its launching will be discussed. After the most complete statement as possible on the recent researches (discoveries, prospections), the detailed discussions will deal with the scientific organization of the project, with the future research trails, and with all the actual and expected partnerships. Then the results of the meeting will be published as soon as possible.
