The Nemea Center Lecture: The Ancient Landscape of Illyrian Apollonia: Excavation and Survey

Lecture: Other UCB Archaeology | April 15 | 7:30 p.m. | 370 Dwinelle Hall

Jack Davis, Carl W. Blegen Professor of Greek Archaeology, University of Cincinnati

The Nemea Center for Classical Archaeology, Archaeological Institute of America

From 1996 to 2005, a joint Albanian-American excavation explored the hinterland of the Corinthian Greek colony of Apollonia in central Albania through systematic surface survey and excavation. This presentation discusses the genesis of the project, its goals, and results — as well as the big surprises that the research produced. The latter range from the first significant traces of a Neanderthal presence in central Albania to a previously unknown Greek temple of the 7th century B.C.
