Summary

For more than two generations Poul Jørgen Riis has played a leading role in Danish Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology. With this book, the Department of International Collections in the Danish National Museum celebrates the 90th birthday of P J Riis on the 26th of May 2000. The book contains essays by some of Riisø' past and present colleagues, collaborators and students touching upon a wide range of subjects within Danish Classical and Near Eastern archaeological research: from Syria to Tunisia, from transport amphoras, and fine ware Arethusa cups to Islamic architecture.
