PCMA Seminar: Characteristics of the cultural stratification at Temple B6 in Mustis

The next seminar organized by PCMA UW is scheduled to take place on March 1st. Dr. Jakub Mosiejczyk (Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology, UW) will be presenting a paper titled “Characteristics of the cultural stratification at Temple B6 in Mustis, Roman Tunisia.” 

Abstract: “The Tunisian–Polish Archaeological Mission to Mustis (el-Krib, Tunisia), has been conducting excavations in the area of the ancient city and its rural hinterland since 2018. In recent research seasons, the stratigraphy of the area surrounding the Roman temples has been comprehensively examined, revealing the oldest archaeological deposits dating from the Numidian period to the transformations of late antiquity. The main phases of urbanization, as determined by the stratigraphy, will be discussed. The conclusions drawn will be related to the main historical events and will include discussions about the transformation of the cities of Proconsular Africa during the Roman period.

The project is managed by the Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology, University of Warsaw, and the Institut National du Patrimoine. The principal investigators are Tomasz Waliszewski and Jamel Hajji. The project is financed by the National Science Centre of Poland: African Palimpsest: The Dynamics of Urban and Rural Communities of Numidian and Roman Mustis (AFRIPAL) 2020/37/B/HS3/00348″.

The seminar will be held on Friday, 1st March, 2024, at 2.00 pm (Warsaw time) – on the Zoom platform. To receive the link, please write to pcma@uw.edu.pl
