AIA Lecture: “Life and Death at Ancient Eleon: Excavations in central Greece 2011-2017”
Thursday, February 1, 2018 - 5:30pm
On Feb 1, at 5:30 pm, in Chavez 301, Brendan Burke (University of Victoria (BC)) will be presenting results from his work at the site of ancient Eleon. Excavations at this site, located 15 km east of Thebes in central Greece, have revealed a center of vibrant activity throughout the Late Bronze Age, starting with a burial complex of the Late Helladic I period (ca. 1600 BCE) and continuing to significant settlement remains of the Late Helladic IIIC period (ca. 1100 BCE). Work has also revealed intriguing evidence for the site’s re-use in historical periods, when the construction of a massive polygonal wall redefined the site’s topography and function during the late Archaic period (ca. 500 BCE).
This talk will highlight results of the collaborative work sponsored by the University of Victoria, the Canadian Institute in Greece and the Ephorate of Antiquities of Boeotia.
