The Late Antique City

July 24, 2021 An ArchaeoArtist Production Season 2 Episode 20
Two Friends Talk History
The Late Antique City
Show Notes

In this episode, Zofia is joined by archaeologist and Late Antique period specialist Dr Javier Martínez Jiménez, currently a PDRA in the Cambridge Faculty of Classics "Impact of the Ancient City" ERC Project, to discuss the social changes that characterised the transition to the Late Antique period. We discuss the knock-on effects of these changes as they impacted technology like water provisioning and urban contraction. 

Tangents include field schools, Roman Merida, setting up a museum exhibition, floating feathered pantomimes, werewolves, and more!

To find out more from the talented Dr Martínez Jiménez please check out his Academia page, and for his new book, Aqueducts and Urbanism in Post-Roman Hispania (2019), can be found at all good booksellers - and  Amazon.
