Digging Up the Past:
Introduction to the Archaeology of Greece

October 10, 17, 24 and 31

Explore the field of archaeology and the history of Greece with History Professor Angela Ziskowski. This series offers an introduction to the methods archaeologists use to understand and study ancient sites. It then employs major forms of evidence available - like pottery, coins, architecture, and ancient texts - as tools to interpret a number of

the best known sites in Greece. Attendees will look at archaeological remains from the Minoan palace of Knossos, Mycenae’s citadel, the Acropolis of Athens, and the athletic games at Olympia, to name a few. The archaeological material will guide participants through the history of Greece, showing how helpful (though misleading) the evidence is for reconstructing the past.
