Preface: Migration and Change: Causes and Consequences of Mobility in the Ancient World
AbstractThe Distant Worlds Journal (DWJ) is an online peer-reviewed journal established especially for presenting the research of early-career scholars on the ancient world. Each edition of the DWJ centres on a specific question or topic pertinent to the diverse disciplines engaged in the study of ancient cultures. In our third edition, we investigate a phenomenon that has shaped today’s society as well as the ancient world: migration and mobility. Particular attention will be paid to what we know about its causes and consequences: Why does migration happen, what are its effects and how do we as
scholars deal with migration and mobility of past peoples?
