31st Congress of Rei Cretariae Romanae Fautores
“Marketing of Roman pottery: economic relationships between local and imported products”
Cluj-Napoca, Romania, 2018
The Rei Cretariae Romanae Fautores is an international learned society specialising in the field of Roman pottery. Its main aim is to establish contact between scholars of different countries and the field of interest is interpreted in its widest sense. The Society was founded in 1957 by the late Professor Howard Comfort of Haverford College, Pennsylvania, and now has over two hundred and fifty individual members in some twenty-five different countries. Congresses are held every two years, in different countries and at the invitation of members who offer to host them. (It is not, however, necessary to become a member of the RCRF in order to participate.)
Papers are generally presented in English, French, German, Italian or Spanish.
The 31st Congress of RCRF is organised by the National Museum of Transylvanian History, with the collaboration of the Faculty of History and Philosophy of the “Babeș-Bolyai” University and the Institute of Archaeology and Art History of the Romanian Academy at Cluj-Napoca.
In this Congress the proposed theme will be “Marketing of Roman pottery: economic relationships between local and imported products“, focusing on the economic life of the Roman Empire as reflected by the interaction between pottery imports and local developments.
