58. ROME'S EASTERN FRONTIER: ON FOOT THROUGH A VANISHED WORLD
Timothy Bruce Mitford
Thursday 27th June 15:30 (60 Min)
Stove Tent by Viking
The immense riches of Roman Asia Minor were protected from invasion from the Caucasus, Armenia and northern Mesopotamia by a fortified frontier nearly 500 miles long, stretching from Syria up the Euphrates valley and over trackless mountains to the far corner of the Black Sea. This region, vast and utterly remote, has effectively been closed to research since the Armenian massacre of 1895 and has long remained one of the great gaps in our knowledge of the ancient world. In this very special talk, Timothy Bruce Mitford offers an account of half a century of research and exploration to discover the material remains of Rome's last unexplored frontier and a way of life little changed since antiquity.
