After the conference is before the conference.

Short trips would / could be:
Künzing,

Alternatively I could organize a three to four day bus trip along the Raetian limes.

Alternative spot- Oxford ( I can try an organise college accomodation). Nearby museums- Ashmolean http://www.ashmolean.org/ and the mildly bonkers Pitt Rivers museum http://www.prm.ox.ac.uk/

I've got links with the Late Antiquity side and the Archaeology.

Nearby sites
-North Leigh Roman villa
-Dorchester on Thames (excavations this Summer)

Cheers

Paul

I also have an idea for quite some time but didn't actually want post it before the current conference but anyhow, since this discussion started:

I suggest Bad Dürkheim and region including visit to the museum in Speyer. In Bad Dürkheim are several Roman places sucht as:

* Roman vineyard Ungstein:
http://www.bad-duerkheim.de/html/Bildung...ilberg.htm

* Roman quarry:
http://www.bad-duerkheim.com/sehenswuerd...bruch.html

* Villa rustica Wachenheim
http://www.villa-rustica-wachenheim.de/

* Museum Haus Catoir
http://www.kreis-bad-duerkheim.de/wTouri...rkheim.php

* Historical Museum Speyer
http://www.museum.speyer.de/

If you guys vote for Bad Dürkheim I would do the organizing. Although I don't live in that region I had been there twice with my ex-boyfriend for vacation.

Alternatively I could organize a four-day bus trip along the Raetian limes. Nights at youth hostels. What do you think?

What do you guys think, esp. the admins/mods, if we make out of the several suggestions in this thread a poll so everyone could vote what they favor most? Is it possible to add a poll now?

Well, it seems that untill now every location we tried to have a conference, which hasn't a big local community of RAT-members didn't seem to work (Augst had to be cancelled and in Ljubljana only 3 RAT-members where present). So, I would better suggest we choose a location where we can be more sure about numbers to attend. (E.G. Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium or UK)

I was kidding....but it would be a handy place to dispose of the rowdy attendees....heh heh
I would love to visit any of the places mentioned already.
So much to see, so little time.
i think the poll is a good idea. Some great options mentioned. Confusedmile:
Visne partem mei capere? Comminus agamus! * Me semper rogo, Quid faceret Iulius Caesar? * Confidence is a good thing! Overconfidence is too much of a good thing.
