Ships and their context: depictions, models,
components – from the Bronze Age to the end
of the Byzantine Empire

Mainz – Friday, May 24th – Saturday, May 25th 2013

Since prehistory, vessels of varying sizes have been in use on
open seas and inland waterways. Information about these
vessels, their particular function and shape, were derived from
physical evidence, such as shipwreck parts and equipment,
ancient ship models, ship illustrations or depictions of ships on
reliefs, wall paintings and coins.
The conference concentrates on iconographical sources, which
have only rarely been studied comprehensively. In addition to
the aspects of ship construction, the conference will focus on
continuity and changes in ship iconography, as well as its
contexts and intentions. The Mediterranean, as the relevant
centre of the Greek, Roman and Byzantine cultures, will form
the core study area of this conference.
