PRESENTATION:

Roman Amphora Contents International Interactive Conference (RACIIC)

Reflecting on Maritime Trade in foodstuffs in Antiquity

In tribute to Miguel Beltrán Lloris

AIMS:
Transport amphorae are commonly used by historians of the ancient economy as
indicators for the production of, and trade in, foodstuffs – essentially olive
oil, wine and garum (salted fish) – in, from and to different locations in the
Roman Empire. The relationship between the areas of production and ceramic
typologies and the contents of the containers is still a matter of debate amongst
specialists. As a result, mistaken associations ensue and difficulties with the
interpretation of the evidence are common. On the other hand, the last two decades
have witnessed spectacular advances in archaeometric techniques, which are now
capable of contributing to the identification of the organic residues that are often
preserved in the amphorae. Amphorae appear in abundant quantities in Atlantic and
Mediterranean contexts but the recording of them is not systematic. There has been
some progress in terms of multidisciplinarity, but the information is not always
easy to find and is in dire need of re-organisation. For this reason, the main
targets of this meeting are as follows:

- To examine the methodological problems associated with sea trade in
amphorae-contained foodstuffs during Antiquity, and its identification on the basis
of historical, archaeological and archaeometric criteria.
- To compile and update our knowledge of the contents of Roman amphorae by province
and region.
- To generate the necessary synergies to launch an international and
multidisciplinary research group within the context of the European strategy Horizon
2020.

FORMAT:
This scientific event is aimed at stimulating interdisciplinary debate and the
active involvement of participants. For this reason, a format inspired by the
Interactive Conference model has been chosen. On the one hand, there will be a
series of key-lectures, delivered on invitation, by international specialist groups.
They will focus on constructing a synthetic review of the state of the question of
amphorae contents by region. A discussion will follow these lectures under the
direction of one of the lecturers (the lecture and discussion will take 30 minutes
each). On the other hand, the conference also aims to promote discussion between all
relevant branches of knowledge (archaeologists, archaeometrists, zooarchaeologists,
epigraphists, historians, chemistry specialists, etc.). International specialists in
each of these areas will conduct the discussions, dealing with the historical and
methodological problems associated with the contents of amphorae, the design of
research protocols, and the aims for the future, in order to develop a study
programme for the next few years. Once agreement is reached, areas that demand
further attention and future avenues of research will be synthesised at the end of
the meetings. The speakers will deliver their lectures to the organisers before 31
July 2015.

Additionally, the programme includes a monographic session for the presentation and
discussion of 50 posters. All presentations (invited lectures and posters) accepted
by the scientific committee will be published in a peer-reviewed volume, along with
the proceedings, by Archaeopress (British Archaeological Reports) in 2016. The
volume will also include a synthesis of the debates and the main conclusions
reached. Final papers for publication must be submitted before 30 November 2015.
