The Historicity of the Trojan War: Excavations at Troy 1988-2010
Thursday Oct 05 07:30 PM
Doris Duke Theatre
About the Lecture:
Presented by Professor C. Brian Rose, University of Pennsylvania
Since 1991 Professor Rose has been co-director of the excavations at Troy. In 1988 archaeologists from the University of Cincinnati and the University of Tübingen, Germany, began new excavations at Troy with the intent of examining all phases of habitation- from the Bronze Age through the Byzantine period. This lecture presents the results of the Bronze Age, Greek, and Roman excavations at the site during the last 24 years and considers the relationship between the recent discoveries at the site and the historicity of the Trojan War.
