Research questions

Equipment, chronology and spatial integration of imperial thermal baths in the micro-region of Pergamon using the example of Cleopatra Ilıca
The phenomenon of rural bathing culture of the Roman Empire is only partially known throughout the Mediterranean, although it is an important element of the Roman otium culture and medicine. The archaeological, architectural and archaeohydrological investigation of Cleopatra Ilıca in the Suburbium of Pergamon will help to answer fundamental questions about the chronology, building typology, equipment and the integration of a thermal bath into the natural and social space. The results obtained are of great importance both for the understanding of the micro-region Pergamon and for the occupation with the so far hardly investigated field of rural bathing. The particular innovative potential of the project, apart from its thematic orientation, lies in the close cooperation of archaeologists, building researchers, archaeohydrologists and geophysicists, through which the spectrum of methods can be further developed together.
