NEAF Saturday Seminar series | ANCIENT SYRIA – 3

Dr Kate da Costa

Palmyra, Queen of the Desert

From Pompey to Heraclius, Rome controlled Syria for 700 years. The inner well-watered farmlands of Syria proved a vast food and tax bowl for the Empire, supporting some of its largest and most beautiful cities. Syria was both a desert frontier, and a heartland province, birthplace of most of the Severan emperors, and Philip the Arab, and of course, Queen Zenobia. Using Palmyra as a lynchpin, the architecture, mosaics, sculpture, paintings, textiles and funerary customs of Roman Syria will illustrate its role as a crossroads of civilization

About the series
These e-lectures will be delivered via Zoom, and will begin around 10am and last for approximately two hours. It is anticipated that after a short introduction, each day’s presentation will be broken into two 45-minute lecture-sessions, with time for questions after each, along with a ten-minute coffee-break between the two sessions, making up a total of approximately two-hours zoom-time for each individual study day.
