Archaeology Society Lecture: Minoan Athletic Competitions

September 19 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Dr. George G. Hackman Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Dr. Robert B. Koehl, Hunter College, CUNY

The Minoans, as the people of Bronze Age Crete have been called since the early 20th century C.E., are known to us primarily from the art and architecture, as their language, called Linear A, remains undeciphered. Among the most notable examples of Minoan imagery are the wall paintings that depict young men, and possibly women, engaging in thrilling and dangerous sports. This talk will further examine these images.

This virtual event will be held via Zoom. RSVP HERE.
