The ancient Aegean and Mediterranean have been key testing grounds for the
development of network concepts and methods in archaeology. A distinctive
feature of network analysis in these areas is its uptake among both
prehistorians and ancient historians, with studies ranging from the Neolithic to
Late Antique. This two-day conference offers an opportunity for scholars working
on all periods in the Aegean to come together to exchange ideas, methods and
results. We also welcome presentations on general network method and theory
topics that show potential for application to studies of the Aegean past.

As part of the ongoing support that The Connected Past offers for the
development of network analysis techniques and theory among students and
practitioners, we are also hosting a practical workshop, offered by The
Connected Past group, at which interested researchers can learn some of the
basics of network science in practice. This will take place during the two days
before the conference (i.e. August 30th and 31st).
