About the conference

The Classical Association of Scotland (founded 1902) is proud to present its first annual conference in a new format.

The primary focus of the conference was on the fall of Rome, but there were also sessions on the decline, fall, or transformation of other ancient empires or hegemonies, as well as on the historiography of ancient imperialism. The keynote speaker was Professor T. D. Barnes (Toronto/Edinburgh).

Papers were 20 minutes long, and were followed by 10 minutes of discussion. All sessions took place in the Archaeology Lecture Theatre, School of History, Classics, and Archaeology, High School Yards, Infirmary Street.
