Making Connections: The Work of Ingholt’s Archive in Rethinking Peripheries

The Archive Archaeology project finds connections across space and time. By drawing parallels between the eastern and western parts of the Roman Empire as well as the time of Harald Ingholt's scholarship with today’s, the archive suggests new potentials for Palmyrene funerary reliefs and Roman provincial sculpture more broadly.

Harald Ingholt & Palmyra

This book grew out of the exhibition Harald Ingholt and Palmyra, which was displayed in 2015 at the Museum of Ancient Art at Aarhus University, Denmark. The exhibition was based on research done within the framework of the Palmyra Portrait Project, which is funded by the Carlsberg Foundation.
