Shipbuilding and Seafaring in the Bronze Age Aegean

Shipbuilding and Seafaring in the Bronze Age Aegean

November 10, 2020 | 6 p.m. | Zoom

All are welcome to this live webinar by Dr. Aleydis van de Moortel, University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Our understanding of Bronze Age Aegean ships is largely based on a record of about 400 ship images, most of them small and schematic. On the basis of the characteristics of a Middle Bronze Age boat found at Mitrou, in central Greece, the speaker will argue for a new ship typology for the Bronze Age Aegean that is based on shipbuilding principles rather than iconographic details.

Hosted by UNCG’s Department of Classical Studies and the Archaeological Institute of America.
