Death In The Land Of Agamemnon: The Excavation Of A Mycenaean Cemetery
From 2006 to 2008, an international team conducted archaeological excavations at the Late Bronze Age site of Ayia Sotira near Nemea, Greece. These excavations saved a cemetery of Mycenaean tombs from looting, and revealed new information about the complex mortuary rituals that surrounded death during the 14th and 13th centuries BCE. Dr. Angus Smith (Department of Classics) will describe the excavations and what these tombs revealed, and put them in the larger context of death in Mycenaean Greece.
