Uncovering Troy: Recent Discoveries and the Homeric Tradition
March 5 at 7 p.m.
The archaeology of Troy, in what is now Turkey, has captured the human imagination for nearly a century and a half. In l988 archaeologists from the University of Cincinnati and the University of Tübingen, Germany, began new excavations with the intent of examining all phases of habitation from the Bronze Age through the Byzantine period. Professor C. Brian Rose, James B. Pritchard Professor of Archaeology at the University of Pennsylvania, and Past President of the Archaeological Institute of America, will present the results of these excavations during the last 24 years, including the impact that recent discoveries have made on the relationship between the site and the Troy of Homer’s Iliad.
