Where East meets West

Urbanisation, provincialisation and cultural interaction in Roman Anatolia

This is an interdisciplinary, collective project aiming to investigate how a polycultural society combining Phrygian, Iranian, and Hellenic elements was absorbed into the Roman Empire. The project will integrate history, geography, philology, epigraphy, archaeology, and numismatics and involve researchers from the University of Southern Denmark (Kolding and Odense) and the University of Copenhagen in partnership with the Nerik project of the Free University of Berlin.

The project will be financed by the Danish Council for Independent Research and the participating universities and directed by Tønnes Bekker-Nielsen, Institute of History, University of Southern Denmark.
