RAT conference MAINZ 2008
I would favor Bad Kreuznach or the two museums in Mainz. In Mainz we could go also to the Isis- und Magna Mater Heiligtum (Sanctuary of Isis and Magna Mater) which is in the basement of the mall "Römerpassage". Infos in German only you will find here:

At Wiesbaden they are still in the process of building the new city museum (Stadtmuseum) where the antiquities will be seen. I just checked it on the Internet.

Yes; it's on Alexander, from the new cuneiform sources. But I confess that part of it is already available in my book (and another part is not). If someone else prefers to speak, that's fine with me. I can also lecture on the Roman history of Mainz.

The Roman history of Mainz could be a great introduction, why not?

Hotel is the IBIS in Mainz. Rooms are booked under my Name.

*EDIT* n.b. that the keys must be fetched at the hotel BEFORE 19:00 , otherwise your reservation is forfeit. All rooms not occupied until 19:00 are billed nonetheless if not taken.

Hi you all,

I'll be arriving by train a little after 1 pm on friday. Perhaps there should be a meeting point for all of us arriving? Or will everybody go the IBIS hotel directly?

I'm really sorry to say that something has come for me - a partial re-write of a novel - which means that I cannot afford to lose the three days in Mainz. My publishers are jumping up and down, as time is very short now for getting the manuscript off to production.
Instead of meeting lots of you guys, touring great museums, listening to interesting lectures, and drinking some beer, I will be crouched before a computer screen for 12+ hours a day. I'm very sorry, and can only apologise about not being able to give a talk on Crassus, which I was really looking forward to. My 60 Euro deposit I would like to forfeit, even if it's not, and any spare part of it can be used to buy a few beers.
Hope to see you in 2009.
