ATLAS – Late antique cities in the South of the Iberian Peninsula and North Africa during the 3rd to 8th centuries is a research and academic dissemination project promoted by three European institutions: the University of Hamburg (Germany), the University of La Rochelle (France) and the Casa de Velázquez School of Advanced Hispanic and Iberian Studies (Madrid, Spain).

Following the principle of open access, ATLAS aims to produce, collect and disseminate relevant research on a selection of the cities that formed part of the rich urban fabric of the ancient Roman provinces of Baetica and Africa Proconsularis.

ATLAS will provide results in different formats

A series of meetings and public events in which, over three years, research results will be presented and shared.

A corpus of publications, both in paper and digital format.

A digital database where all the geographical and temporal references available in relation to the cities chosen for the project will be systematically collected and organised.

A travelling exhibition, showing digital reconstructions of the cities that the research has focused on.

Sabine Panzram, of the University of Hamburg, and Laurent Brassous, of the University of La Rochelle, are the principal investigators (IP) of the project, which involves a number of researchers and scholars grouped around three geographical nodes: Hamburg (Germany), La Rochelle (France) and Madrid (Spain).
