Mediterranean

The Mediterranean is a unique theatre, half-land, half-sea, and the largest extent of a distinctive and challenging type of environment on the planet. As the meeting point of Asia, Africa and Europe, it has formed one of the crucibles of cultural change, interconnections and large-scale developments in world history, from the emergence of modern humans, through the expansion of farming, emergence of complex polities and evolution of maritime connections, up to (and beyond) the civilisations of Classical antiquity. Many members of the Institute offer cutting-edge expertise in specific periods and regions within and surrounding the Mediterranean, and several direct field projects that are generating fresh insights into its societies. Beyond this, a critical mass are committed to Mediterranean-wide research and teaching from comparative and diachronic perspectives that aim to transform our understanding of its social, economic and cultural dynamics.
