About the book

For more than two generations Poul Jørgen Riis has played a leading role in Danish Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology. With Between Orient and Occident 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.
