Event Description: 

Dr. Amanda Kelly (Assistant Professor, School of Archaeology & Beijing Dublin International College, University College Dublin), "The Aqueducts of the Greater Knossos Region"

In the early 20th century, Sir Arthur Evans remarked, while observing a Roman pipeline approaching the Minoan palace of Knossos, that the Roman and Venetian aqueducts conducted water from a spring in the foothills of Mount Juktas, and he contended that the Minoans were capable of the same. In short, Evans envisaged a continuity of long-distance water exploitation from the Bronze Age through to the early modern era. Our proposed survey will test his conjecture by examining three aqueducts traversing the valleys leading northwards from the foothills of Mount Juktas.
Fieldwork will target a Roman channel from the Fundana springs; a Venetian line from Arkhanes; and a 19th century supply which partly adhered to the earlier trajectories. The combined survey approach will provide a new perspective on past abilities to collect, manage and conduct water over long distances. The resulting data will inform our understanding of life at Roman Knossos, while feeding into studies of Venetian and later Herakleion, and underpin policy for the protection of these ancient hydraulic systems.

Event Description: 

Baukje van den Berg (Central European University (Budapest), "From Ancient Models to Byzantine Literature: Studying Classics in Byzantium"

Ancient Greek literature was an important source of inspiration and imitation for Byzantine authors: they modelled their language on the Attic authors of the Classical period, were inspired by ancient genres, and included numerous allusions to and quotations from ancient literature in their writings. The role of ancient texts in Byzantine literary culture is inextricably connected to education and scholarship: Byzantine scholars and teachers appropriated ancient literature to express contemporary didactic aims and social values. They taught their students grammar and rhetoric through ancient texts, while also providing them with strategies for creatively engaging with the literature of the past. This lecture explores the close connection between education and literary production by studying various texts that facilitate the use of ancient literature in Byzantine literary culture. It addresses such questions as how Byzantine scholars and authors perceive their relationship to the authors of the past and how they translate the study of ancient models into new literary products expressing contemporary literary aesthetics.
