Roman Libya: epigraphy, geography and archaeology
The Society for Libyan Studies and the Inscriptions of Roman Cyrenaica project are organising a joint colloquium and workshop, 13-14 February 2009, at King’s College London.
The Inscriptions of Roman Cyrenaica project (http://ircyr.kcl.ac.uk) which is funded by the Leverhulme Trust, aims to publish, online, the inscriptions of Roman Cyrenaica collected by Joyce Reynolds, together with related geographical data, provided by the Pleiades project (http://pleiades.stoa.org/) and illustrative material from the Ward-Perkins Archive at the British School at Rome. An associated project, Concordia, (http://concordia.atlantides.org) is producing an electronic reprint of Joyce Reynolds and John Ward-Perkins, Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania.
The aim of the colloquium/workshop is to bring together scholars working on the history, archaeology and geography of Roman Libya; we plan to describe and compare our projects, and to discuss ways in which we can help and support one another, particularly by exploiting new media.
