The history of the island of Crete under Roman rule, like many regions in the Mediterranean, often focuses on the impact of significant events. For Crete, the conquest of the island by Rome from 69-67 BC and a series of destructive earthquakes between the fourth and sixth centuries AD serve as two examples. But how significant are these events when it comes to understanding social transformation? This talk will take the perspective of eventful archaeology to explore social transformation on Roman Crete and the stimuli that led to those changes.
