De Africa Romaque - Merging Cultures Across North Africa

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventOrganising a conference, workshop, ...


This international conference explored the relationships between North Africa and Rome (ca. 2nd century BC – 4th century AD). Current studies have moved away from a Rome-centred viewpoint which used to portray local populations as passive recipients of Rome’s culture. Attention has been turned to the multiple ways in which these peoples re-created their identity and negotiated with the imperial power. Presentations will embrace research on the archaeology, ancient history, and civilization of Roman period North Africa, covering a broad geographical area: Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt and Morocco.
