Since 1981, the Ancient Medicine Interdisciplinary Working Group holds annual meetings (usually in early summer) at Johannes Gutenberg University (JGU) in Mainz. The Group provides an international forum to present ongoing research projects dealing with early medical knowledge, its transmission and reception in different cultures.
