The Helsinki Research on the Ancient World (HelRAW) seminar was launched in Autumn 2018. The monthly research seminar hosts a guest speaker or several shorter presentations centered around a common theme. The schedule of the seminar and information about the speakers and their topics will be posted here and in the News & Events as the speakers are confirmed.
HelRAW is organized by the SpaceLaw project together with Marja Vierros from the Digital Grammar of Greek Documentary Papyri (PapyGreek) project.
