Aphrodisias has vital new archaeological evidence for urban life under the Roman empire, from the booming culture of carved marble in the first and second centuries to the catastrophic end of monumental city life in the seventh century. Papers present the latest research and discoveries at the site, focusing on major transformations from Augustus to Heraclius.
Open to the public and registration requested.
