The research project Mechanisms of cross-cultural interaction: Networks in the Roman Near East (2013-2016) investigates the resilient everyday ties, such as trade, religion and power, connecting people within and across fluctuating imperial borders in the Near East in the Roman Period. The project is funded under the Research Council of Norway's SAMKUL initiative, and hosted by the Department of archaeology, history, cultural studies and religion, University of Bergen, Norway.

Blog: archaeological networks

Check out colleague Tom Brughmans' blog on archaeological networks. Tom is PhD-candidate at Southampton University, and has over the last years established himself as a profiled advocate of network approaches to archaeology. Among other things he is part of the team behind the Connected Past conference in Southampton last year, which was a great inspiration for my own project. His blog is a great place for news on publications, projects and conferences as well as reflections on networks in archaeology.
