Event Description: 

Dr. Fotis Ifantidis (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki), «Biographies of personal adornment in Neolithic Greece»

Beads, pendants, and annulets comprise just a small -and quite fragmented- part of a
vast “toolkit” of corporal decoration uncovered from excavations in Neolithic Greece.
While the configuration of a “panoramic” view of facets of use and production of
personal ornaments in Neolithic Greece is confronted with multi-leveled problems, a
closer look at the conditions of use, reuse, or deposition may highlight multiple
narratives on the biographies of these - closely linked to the body -artifacts.
