Faculty Presents at MSU & ASOR Annual Meeting in Boston

Lecturing on Aegean Bronze Age warfare, hunting and violence at MSU

CYA Professor Angelos Papadopoulos attended the American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR) Annual Meeting in Boston, MA, on November 16 presenting his work on Aegean Iconography of Warfare: Images of Battle and Hunting in the Late Bronze Age: Why Is the Aegean So Different from Its Eastern Neighbors? 

                        ASOR College Year in Athens, CYA,

The conference attracts over 1,000 scholars and enthusiasts of archaeology, linguistics, geography, epigraphy, anthropology, and other fields related to the study of the ancient Near East. Over 1200 papers and posters were presented. Among the attendees were numerous CYA alumni, colleagues, friends and other faculty members.

Following the conference, Prof. Papadopoulos was invited to Mississippi State University (MSU) as a guest scholar.  He gave two lectures on his archaeological work: Studying Warfare in the Aegean during the Late Bronze Age: Myths and Realities and Old excavations under a new light: Mycenaean pottery, British excavations and “objects of no value”.
 
During his visit, he also conducted a special Minoan-style mud-brick making workshop introducing participants to the ancient “recipe” and technique of producing strong, ready to use unbaked mud bricks, a material which housed people and their civilizations for millennia.
