The Centre for Late Antique and Byzantine Studies was established in 2007 with the aim of fostering interest in the Late Antique period in western Europe and the Byzantine Empire in the Balkans, north Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean, broadly during the period c. AD 300 to AD 900. The Centre is a joint venture between the Departments of Archaeology and Classics, both of which have strong traditions in the field. The Honorary President is Wolf Liebeschuetz, Emeritus Professor of Classics and a distinguished scholar in late antique studies.
The initial objective of the Centre is to host an annual series of research seminars, and in the longer-term to hold conferences on themes arising from the research interests of relevant staff.
The next lecture will be by by Professor S. Ladstatter, Director of the Austrian Archaeological Institute and director of the Austrian excavations at Ephesus: 'Ephesos in Late Antiquity and beyond).Wednesday 20th February at 4.30m in Humanities A3.
