Warsaw University archaeologists to co-organise 26th Limes Congress


The Centre for Mediterranean Archaeology and the Faculty of Archaeology of the University of Warsaw, together with the Georgian Agency for the Protection of Cultural Heritage of the Republic of Adjaria, will be the organisers of the 26th Limes Congress to be held in 2024 in Batumi, Georgia.

The Limes Congress (Congress of Roman Frontier Studies, Limes Congress) is the largest and most prestigious academic conference dedicated to the study of the borders of the Roman Empire. Its history dates back to 1949 and it meets every three years and brings together several hundred specialists from all over the world.

The Congress can only be hosted by the country on whose territory a section of the Roman Empire’s frontier ran. For this reason, the University of Warsaw, although involved in limes research for many years, could not offer to organise this conference in Poland.
