This Ancient World Seminar will feature five short presentations by University of Melbourne academics and students on current archaeological fieldwork projects, including the Marzuolo Archaeological Project (Italy: excavation of a rural Roman craft production centre in Tuscany), the Sissi Archaeological Project (Crete: excavation of a Minoan settlement), the Georgian-Australian Investigations in Archaeology Project (Georgia: excavation of a multi-period fortified settlement), and the Tell es-Safi/Gath Archaeological Project (Israel: excavation of a Philistine city). The seminar will end with a presentation on the Shirīn Initiative (Syrian Heritage in Danger: an International Research Initiative and Network), which brings together international research groups that were active in Syria prior to the conflict there, and focuses their expertise on heritage protection.
