I just got back from Amphorae VI which this year was held at Auckland University, three days of excellent postgraduate papers. Big kudos to organisers Lawrence Xu and Nicola Wright and their team of volunteers! As well as hearing some excellent presentations I got good feedback from several people on my own paper Treachery Worse Than Punic: Livy’s Landscape and Hannibal’s Invasion of Italy, which I will use to hopefully improve it further. Also met and hung out with friends new and old, its great to discuss research in informal settings like this. Its maintained a consistently good quality of papers for six years now! Next year Amphorae VII will be at Sydney University.
