Prof. Scott Gallimore (Wilfrid Laurier University), "An Island in Crisis? Re-evaluating the Formation of Roman Crete"

The conquest of Crete by Rome from 69–67 BC remains poorly understood in terms of its impacts on the island before and after the invasion. From an archaeological perspective, it takes decades before noticeable changes are apparent in Crete’s material culture. This paper will explore this topic by viewing available data through the lens of eventful archaeology, the archaeology of crisis, and resilience theory to reassess the formation of Roman Crete.
