Mediterranean Archaeology

The Mediterranean is the world's largest inland sea and a key theatre in which the people of Europe, western Asia and North Africa have interacted since Palaeolithic times. Mediterranean archaeology, one of the world's richest sources for the reconstruction of ancient societies, reveals different, more tolerant templates, which are fundamental to the negotiation of the present and creation of a viable future.
