Research - Education: Byzantine Greece
Byzantine Material Culture and Topography
Virtual short course offered by the BSA
21 Apr 2021by Archaeology Newsroom
‘Byzantine Material Culture and Topography’ is the theme of The British School at Athens’ free short course, which will run in June 2021. The course, offering virtual tours and virtual object handling sessions, is intended both for those who are new to the study of the Byzantine world and also for more experienced scholars who would like first-hand (virtual) access to Byzantine material culture. This event is offered in place of the BSA Postgraduate Course in Byzantine Archaeology and History, which sadly we are unable to run this year in person. Participants will follow a series of four virtual lectures, introducing the material culture and topography of Byzantine Athens, situating both objects and places within a broader historical framework. Teaching will make extensive use of the BSA collections, including the ‘Byzantine Research Fund Archival Collection’. ‘The Byzantine Research Fund Archival Collection’ Monday 14th June, 2 pm–3 pm (UK time) For the Zoom link click here. ‘Material Culture I: Ceramics’ Thursday 17th June, 2 pm–3 pm (UK time) For the Zoom link click here. ‘The Topography of Byzantine Athens’ Tuesday 22nd June, 2 pm –3 pm (UK time) For the Zoom link click here. ‘Material Culture II: Coins’ Friday 25th June, 2 pm–3 pm (UK time) For the Zoom link click here.
