The Archaeological Museum of Eivissa and Formentera (MAEF) – a centre attached to the Department of European Funds, University and Culture of the Government of the Balearic Islands – and the Council of Eivissa organised the 10th International Congress of Phoenician and Punic Studies last October 2022 and now make available to those interested all the videos of the scientific sessions, held at the Palacio de Congresos de Eivissa (Santa Eulària des Riu) with in-person participation of 400 people.

For the first time in the history of the congress, the organisers opted for online broadcasting of the event in order to further increase the dissemination of new research developments. The figures obtained reached a total of 1,800 connections with an average of 500 connections per day. The congress was followed online from many places around the world, mainly from Spain and Italy, but also from countries such as France, Portugal, the United States, Tunisia, Uruguay, Israel, Greece and Lebanon, among others.

The congress programme was structured in thematic sessions on different topics of historiography, sources, numismatics, religion and iconography, epigraphy, architecture and town planning, territory and topography, habitat and daily life, economy and trade, archaeometry, funerary world, material culture and regional contacts. New for the 2022 Ibizan edition were sessions on anthropological and DNA studies, customisation and dissemination projects, and on navigation and underwater heritage. From now on, all the videos of these sessions are available on the websites of the congress ( and the Archaeological Museum of Eivissa and Formentera ( Finally, throughout 2023 work will also be done on the publication of the Proceedings of the 10th International Congress of Phoenician and Punic Studies thanks to the collaboration of the Ministry of Culture and Sport of the Spanish Government.
