Call for Posters for the conference
thermae in Context - The Roman Bath in Town and in Life
at the Centre Culturel de Rencontre Abbaye de Neumünster, Luxemburg-City
on 21st – 24th February 2013
During the international conference „thermae in Context – The Roman Bath in Town and in Life“ from 21 to 24 February 2013 in Luxembourg two main issues will be treated: the small finds found in bathes and the information they give us on the activities taking place in thermae as well as the spatial and social position of a bath in a Roman settlement.
The conference will start with an excursion to the Roman vicus at Dalheim and its bath building. This trip prepares the first session of the following day when three lectures cover the Roman settlement at Dalheim. The conference will also conclude with an excursion, in this instance to Trier, in order to experience the archaeological richness of the spectacular Imperial and Barbara Baths.
To help students and young researchers, a poster session will be organized on February 22. This is a good opportunity for young researchers to present their work (for instance bachelor or master thesis) to a large public of colleagues and specialists in archaeology.
How to participate:
The topic should refer to one of the main issues or to Roman baths in general
Posters should be in English
Dimensions: width max. 1 m, height max. 2 m.
Printing costs are not refunded
Deadline: 15th January 2013
