Save Ancient Studies Alliance presents our third annual conference, a new type of online conference for ALL Ancient Studies scholars & anyone interested in the Ancient World. 

This conference invites you to consider traditions and innovations in discovery, science, and technology throughout the Ancient World, meaning across the globe in pre-modern times. We invite presenters to submit abstracts on any ancient culture on a topic relevant to this discussion.

Conference Goals: 

1. to hold an academic Ancient Studies conference freely available to the public
