Roman Ostia: Revisiting and Rethinking

The Faculty of Archaeology will be organising an international workshop on Ostia, taking place on the 6th and 7th of December 2011. The workshop will celebrate Bouke van der Meer’s research in Ostia and mark his academic retirement.
Organised in conjunction with Hanna Stöger’s  PhD defence on the 7th of December (13.45 h), the workshop brings together international Ostia scholars, taking advantage of their presence in the PhD examination committee. This gathering in Leiden will provide an opportunity to  celebrate the association of Bouke van der Meer with both his own studies in Ostia and with Hanna’s research through being her co-promotor.
