From Protoarchaic Ritual Center to Archaic Greek City: Excavations at Azoria in Eastern Crete

Donald Haggis University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Friday, October 18, 2019 5:00PM Jones 204

Reception to follow in Jones 210 Tulane University The Department of Classical Studies

The lecture presents the results of recent excavations at Azoria, an early Archaic city in eastern Crete, tracing the development of the settlement from its foundations in the seventh century B.C. until its destruction in the early 5th century B.C. The emphasis will be the archaeological evidence for the mobilization of agricultural produce as a critical component of the political economy of the early city, and patterns of food storage, processing, and distribution in ritualized contexts of communal consumption.
