The Sagalassos Archaeological Research Project has made interdisciplinary practices part of its scientific strategy from the very beginning. The project is internationally acknowledged for important achievements in this respect. Aspects of its approach to ancient Sagalassos can be considered ground-breaking for the archaeology of Anatolia and the wider fields of classical and Roman archaeology.

Now that its first project director, Professor Marc Waelkens – University of Leuven -, is at the stage of shifting practices, from an active academic career to an active academic retirement, this volume represents an excellent opportunity to reflect on the wider impact of the Sagalassos Archaeological Research Project. The contributors to the honorific publication build on the methods and practices of interdisciplinary archaeology from a wide variety of angles, in order to highlight the crucial role of interdisciplinary research for creating progress in the interpretation of the human past or nurture developments in their own disciplines. In particular, the contributors consider how the parcours of the Sagalassos Project helped to pave their ways.

Contributors are international authorities in the field of Anatolian and classical archaeology, bio-archaeology, geo-archaeology, history and cultural heritage.

Jeroen Poblome is full professor at KU Leuven and member of the Sagalassos Archeological Research Project since 1991. He was director from 2013 to 2023.

It is a pleasure to see Marc Waelkens celebrated in Exempli Gratia. The warmth and quantity of the various prefatory tributes are well deserved. There are 13 chapters (most in English and the remainder with English abstracts), plus Jeroen Poblome’s ‘Editorial Note’, in effect the introduction, which emphasizes that ‘this volume is not a Festschrift in the strict sense … [but] a wider, thematic platform in which scholars, friends and colleagues close to Marc took the opportunity to reflect critically upon the value of the interdisciplinary message of the Sagalassos Project’; and the ‘Postscript’ by Wolfgang Radt, an assessment of how interdisciplinary archaeology has enriched classical archaeology.Ancient East and West 16 (2017)
