|International workshop "Sailing from Sailing from Polis to Empire
Maritime Scales in the Eastern Mediterranean during the Hellenistic Period (4th - 1st centuries BCE)": This international workshop took place in 14 – 15 November 2014 and was organised by the University of Cyprus ('Sailing in Cyprus through the ages' project) and the Le Mans University, France, in collaboration with the French Institute of Cyprus (Institut Français de Chypre), CReAAH (Centre de Recherches en Archéologie, Archéosciences, Histoire) and the Scientific Interest Group of Maritime History (Groupement d'Intérêt Scientifique d'Histoire Maritime).
In the international workshop maritime archaeologists and historians from France and Cyprus presented new data and discussed important research topics, such as the geography of sailing, seaborne trade patterns and mechanisms, ship types and shipbuilding technology. The focus was on Hellenistic times, a period when sea power was undoubtedly the epicentre of ideological and political developments: naval fleets became of key importance for the kingdoms, and the new seaborne trade networks created different economic trends in the Eastern Mediterranean. The results of the programme were presented by the Coordinator Dr. Stella Demesticha and the principal investigator, Evi Karyda.
