Recherches récentes sur la ville de Milet

Julien Zurbach École normale supérieure, UMR 8546 AOrOc, IUF
Discutant : Julien Faguer École française d’Athènes

Le programme de recherches qui se développe depuis 2020 sur l’histoire longue de la ville de Milet vise à mieux comprendre l’organisme urbain né dès l’âge du Bronze et continuellement vivant jusqu’à l’époque ottomane. L’objet central en est évidemment le plan de la ville mis en lumière par les prospections géophysiques depuis vingt ans, mais dont la date et le développement restent difficiles à établir faute de données stratigraphiques. La présentation donne une vue d’ensemble du programme, de ses objectifs et de ses méthodes, et évoque les premiers résultats de la fouille de 2021 ainsi que les perspectives immédiates.

Event Description: 

The Battle for Aphrodite

Join us for an online live debate over the origins of Aphrodite, presented by the Chau Chak Wing Museum and the Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens.

Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love and beauty, endures throughout the ages in art, architecture and storytelling – from Homer and Apelles to Botticelli and Bananarama. Across the Mediterranean Aphrodite’s power was all encompassing and her beauty legendary, but who can lay claim to the goddess’ origins?

In antiquity there were conflicting versions of Aphrodite’s birth. She was born in the sea-foam after Kronos castrated Uranus, but did she emerge from the ocean on the shores of Kythera or Cyprus? Both islands constructed important cult sanctuaries to the goddess and have claimed the title ‘Island of Aphrodite.’

To settle this age old conflict, our very own Dr Lita Tzortzopoulou-Gregory, expert on the archaeology and history of Kythera from the AAIA, takes on Dr Craig Barker, resident Cypriot expert and director of the University’s excavations on the island, to battle it out in an online debate. Both speakers will present aspects of their islands mythological, archaeological and historical connections with the goddess of love and we invite, you to help us determine the victor.

The debate will be moderated by Candace Richards (Chau Chak Wing Museum) and adjudicated by Dr Amelia Brown (The University of Queensland) and our audience will have a chance to cast their vote in this epic battle of history.

This event is co-hosted by the Chau Chak Wing Museum, University of Sydney.

Time: 9:30am Athens/ 6:30pm Sydney/ 7:30am UTC

Event Description: 

The Irish Institute of Hellenic Studies at Athens and the UCD School of Classics, University College Dublin, invites you to an online lecture by Klairi Gianniri, Ph.D. Candidate in the University of Athens. This will take place at 17.30 pm (UK time)/ 19.30 pm (Greek time) on Thursday 27th January.

Public Archaeology as a means to empower rural communities: a case study in mountainous areas of East Crete

“Over the last years the significance of archaeology for the local communities in the Aegean has been under discussion. The archaeological ethnography research in the Anatoli village (Province of Hierapetra), has shown that archaeology’s impact may extend into matters of everyday life, such as the relatively small but vital functions of a rural community. These functions and their entanglement with archaeology on mountainous settlements of Crete is the topic whereupon this paper focuses. In particular, the relationship between a local community and archaeology as well as the ways it can be traced, comprehended, and utilised for the mutual benefit of both parties will be examined. Also, the contribution of archaeological ethnography and oral history will be discussed within the frame of the exploration of phenomena that shape a community’s identity. Events of public archaeology have the potential to reintroduce the world of archaeology to the contemporary social sphere. Consequently, this paper attempts not only to point out the multiple benefits of a rural community's involvement in the archaeological research, but also to highlight the ways through which tradition and collective memory can propose alternative and multivocal channels to talk about archaeology today and to make it socially relevant and useful to present day communities”.

Klairi Gianniri is a researcher, museologist and cultural manager based in Athens. She has a background in Cultural Communication and Technology (University of Aegean, Lesvos) and in Social and Cultural Anthropology (Freie Universität, Berlin). She holds a Masters degree in Museum Studies from the Department of History and Archaeology (University of Athens), while her PhD in the same department focuses on Public Archaeology of mountain and remote communities. Currently she is a visiting doctoral candidate at Ludwig Uhland Institut für Empirische Kulturwissenschaft (Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen). She has participated in numerous research projects and archaeological excavations, in the role of heritage outreach coordinator. The last couple of years she is leading the archaeological ethnography project in Anatoli region of East Crete. During her participation in the START Create Cultural Change Fellowship program in 2018/19, she organised and implemented an experiential archaeological festival (ArchaeoLogic) in Hierapetra, Crete.

Event Description: 

Η αρχαιοκαπηλία είναι μια σοβαρή μορφή παράνομης δραστηριότητας, η οποία είναι εξαιρετικά προσοδοφόρα για τα σχετικά κυκλώματα, αλλά συνιστά μάστιγα της πολιτιστικής κληρονομιάς. Το εγκληματικό αυτό φαινόμενο πραγματεύεται ανοικτή τηλεδιάλεξη με θέμα «Το διεθνές κύκλωμα αρχαιοκαπηλίας: μουσεία, συλλέκτες, πανεπιστήμια και το εμπόριο της τέχνης», την οποία διοργανώνει το Μεταπτυχιακό πρόγραμμα «Πολιτιστική Πολιτική και Ανάπτυξη» του Ανοικτού Πανεπιστημίου Κύπρου (ΑΠΚΥ) την Κυριακή 30 Ιανουαρίου 2022.

Ο ομιλητής Δρ Χρήστος Τσιρογιάννης, Αναπληρωτής Καθηγητής και ερευνητής στο Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies του Πανεπιστημίου Aarhus, θα αναλύσει, με βάση τη έρευνά του και την ειδικότητά του σε θέματα αρχαιοκαπηλίας και εμπορίου αρχαιοτήτων, σημαντικές παραμέτρους του θέματος.

Η ανοικτή στο κοινό τηλεδιάλεξη θα αρχίσει στις 20:00 και θα μεταδοθεί μέσω των εργαλείων τηλεκπαίδευσης του ΑΠΚΥ στον σύνδεσμο https://bit.ly/3BYQdkJ.

Ο ομιλητής θα παρουσιάσει μια σύντομη ιστορική αναδρομή στους λόγους και στους τρόπους απόκτησης αποδεικτικών στοιχείων για την αντιμετώπιση της μάστιγας της αρχαιοκαπηλίας σε διεθνές επίπεδο. Θα αναφερθεί στους κύριους πρωταγωνιστές στον χώρο του εμπορίου αρχαιοτήτων και στους παραλήπτες/πελάτες, που μπορεί να είναι πανεπιστημιακά και άλλα μουσεία, συλλέκτες, κ.ά. Πολλές υποθέσεις ελληνικού ενδιαφέροντος (συμπεριλαμβανομένης και της Κύπρου) θα προβληθούν με τη χρήση απτών αποδείξεων, ενώ ιδιαίτερη σημασία θα δοθεί από τον ομιλητή στη διάκριση μεταξύ ακαδημαϊκής και αστυνομικής/εισαγγελικής έρευνας, καθώς και στα συχνά διαφορετικά, αλλά συνδυαζόμενα αποτελέσματά τους.

Είστε όλ@ ευπρόσδεκτ@.

"Reflections on the Athenian Cavalry"

Glenn R. Bugh

Associate Professor of Ancient History, Virginia Tech

 

https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/7816416419553/WN_7jbC_WIeSTOzDB...

 

This talk will survey Athenian cavalry studies from the magisterial book by M.A. Martin, Les cavaliers athéniens in 1886 to the present. Martin made full use of the corpora of inscriptions available to him in the late 19th century, but he did not have access to the treasures yet to come from the Agora after the Americans began digging in 1931 (and the German School in the ancient cemetery [Kerameikos] since 1913). As the number of inscriptions multiplied, references to the Athenian cavalry naturally increased and American epigraphists labored to study and publish individual documents in Hesperia. In the 1960's cavalry studies built on these archaeological developments with the publication of J.K. Anderson's on Ancient Greek Horsemanship (1961); the discovery of an inscription near the Hephaisteion that documented the reduction of the canonical 1000-man Classical Athenian cavalry to a modest 200 troopers by the 280's; and the startling discovery by German excavators of hundreds of lead tablets in the Kerameikos that detailed the administration of the Athenian cavalry. In 1971 a smaller cache of 4th c. BC cavalry tablets was excavated in the Agora. The publication of new cavalry inscriptions from the early Hellenistic period found in the northwest quadrant of the Agora clearly point to the presence of the Hipparcheion, the cavalry headquarters, somewhere close by. The key to the upsurge of cavalry publications in the 1960's and 1970's is clearly to be found in the inscriptions uncovered in the major excavations in Athens; these would serve to triangulate traditional texts and material culture (e.g., the Parthenon frieze and hippic reliefs). The new epigraphical texts created a need for synthetic studies to integrate the new evidence into a broader historical narrative. By the late 1980's and early 1990's, two monographs on the Athenian cavalry had appeared, and soon thereafter several works on Greek cavalry from a military perspective.
