Institute of Classical Studies Byzantine Colloquium

The annual Institute of Classical Studies Byzantine Colloquium will take
place, this year, on Saturday, 13 June. For logistical reasons it will
be held in the Lucas Theatre, King's College.
The theme is Turkey and the Byzantine. With the generous support of the
Institute and the Turkish Embassy, we will be hearing reports on
Byzantine excavations in Istanbul, including those at the Yeni Kapi
site, uncovering both the Theodosian Harbour, and also the neolithic
origins of habitation on the site. There will also be papers examining
the inheritance of the Byzantine in Ottoman culture.
