Conference: Egypt and Austria XII - "Central Europe, Egypt and the Orient: The Current Research"
Geographischer Bezug: Ägypten
Berichtszeitraum: Frühgeschichte / Antike
The Central European region from the Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary and Slovakia to Slovenia and Italy has seen a long history of connection and disruption, in which the relations with the Orient have played a decisive role. The project focuses its activities on the reconstruction of the network of economic, scientific and political relations connecting the countries of the former Danube Monarchy and Egypt. It shows how the interactions with the Eastern Mediterranean have influenced science, politics and economy in this period before the disintegration of the Hapsburg Monarchy and have thus shaped Central European Culture up until today.
