----------------------------------------------- Call for papers Ceramics of the Argolid in the Context of the Peloponnese: Post Mycenaean to Early Byzantine Porto Cheli, 7-10 March, 2004 Pottery of the Bronze Age from Argive sites has formed a nucleus of research for the entire period far beyond the Argolid. By contrast, relatively little has been done with the regions pottery from the subsequent Iron Age, since the focus of interest shifted into a Classical world dominated by Athens and her wares. Only Geometric ceramics of the Argolid have been investigated more systematically, particuarly through the work of W. Moeller, P. Courbin and N. Coldstream Beyond the Geometric period, though, relatively little systematic research has been made public. As a result, information remains available only for a limited number of key-sites, most of them published a considerable time ago. But excavations throughout the Argolid by the Greek Archaeological Service as well as by a number of Foreign Schools have continuously demonstrated a rich and interesting heritage of post-Bronze Age pottery. The information to be gained from these materials is of vital importance for historical and contextual studies of historical, human activities in the Argolid. This holds true especially in view of the wide typological and functional variety of both locally produced and imported ceramics recovered. The focus of the conference will be on settlement- and necropolis-materials, giving arthistorical studies of such materials a secondary priority. Of great importance is also the broader context of the Peloponnese within which Argive ceramics flourished during this period. Adopting the tenet: locally found, locally produced (?), the conference wants to explore the possible connection between other regional / local industries within the peninsula. Particular emphasis will be placed on methods for identifying locally produced and used wares. We are calling for papers to be delivered at an archaeological conference to be held 07 - 10 March 2004 at Porto Cheli in the Southern Argolid. Applications for Poster-Sessions will also be entertained. This conference will be open to all professionals and students interested in regional studies of pottery. Papers on materials from the Argolid will be given first priority. Besides all types of pottery, presentations on clay lamps, or in special cases other types of clay industries will also be accepted. The Argolid, for the purposes of the event, is defined as extending from the pass of Derveni southwards, including the Epidauria as well as the Southern Argolid, i.e. the area south of Didyma mountains. Westwards it extends to the northern borders of the Thyreatis. Deadline for submission of abstracts is July 31 2003. Abstract will be accepted in English, French, German and Greek. Please, provide full mailing address and e-mail or URL. The proceedings will be published. Please reply by july 31 2003 to: firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail: Argive Conference c/o W.
