Migration and the Making of the Ancient Greek World

Project description

Better understanding of migration through ancient Greece

In the ancient Greek world, migration played an important role. While the world at the time was geographically dispersed with communities scattered across the Mediterranean and Black Sea, it was culturally integrated. The EU-funded MIGMAG project aims to understand local and intraregional mobilities, breaking existing stalemates. It plans to use an interdisciplinary methodology that combines theories from human geography and migration studies, archaeological survey data on environment and new settlements, and ancient literary sources. By conceptualising the true nature of the ancient Greek world, it will help open up new horizons within the disciplines of ancient cultural and political history. This, in turn, will help set new agendas for research into past mobilities and the archaeology of migration.
