The Archaeology of Ritual: Rethinking ritual practices in sanctuaries and necropoleis of the ancient Mediterranean world

What are the methodologies and various approaches applied to the study of ritual contexts within the archaeological record, specifically in the investigation of sanctuaries and necropoleis in the ancient Mediterranean landscape? How does one define an ancient ritual practice and/or context and what are the main difficulties encountered whilst attempting to apply such definitions in an archaeological context? These are the main themes we would like to address in a symposium composed of both experienced academics as well as shedding light on new methodologies and approaches proposed by young researchers from a variety of disciplines and specializations.
