The Mediterranean Exchange in Antiquity
Throughout history, more than as a border separating territories, the Mediterranean Sea has acted as a communication network that connects a melting pot of peoples and cultures. The legacy of this connection in the form of archaeological heritage illustrates how the nature of relations between communities in the past, especially in the period of Antiquity during which the commercial and cultural exchanges of Phoenicians, Greeks and indigenous people, completely transformed these Mediterranean communities. The InterMedit project, with the support of the Euroregión Pirineos Mediterráneo, was created to contribute to the knowledge and dissemination of this thousand-year-old connection between the regions of the Balearic Islands, Catalonia and Occitania through their archaeological heritage. Connecting with this heritage through new information and communication technologies (3D digitization of archaeological objects, virtual visits, etc.) has allowed the project to rise to the new challenges that today's society faces.
