We are calling for manuscripts for the thematic fascicle of our journal Polish Archaeology in the Mediterranean devoted to Roman and Byzantine Pottery in the Levant.
Research on Roman and Byzantine pottery in the Levant is gaining momentum with a growing number of researchers addressing typological and chronological questions concerning both common and fine wares. The aim of a thematic volume, planned as a separate thematic fascicle of the journal Polish Archaeology in the Mediterranean (PAM), is to provide a platform for presenting the results of the latest studies on the Roman and Byzantine (late 1st century BC–7th century AD) pottery from Syria, Lebanon, Palestine and Jordan.
The editors encourage presentations of original research focused on problems of typology, chronology and distribution of both local and foreign wares. The emphasis is on reported discoveries from new excavations, but unpublished material from old excavations will be accepted as well. Papers dealing with issues such as regional diversity and interregional trade are also welcome. Bringing all the contributions in one volume should refine and expand current pottery research.
PAM Journal is a scholarly publication of over 30-years standing and is available in Open Access as well as in hard copy. The planned fascicle will be part of the 29th volume that will be published by the end of 2020.
Manuscript submissions should be made by JUNE 30, 2020, in order to meet the publication date.
