Carl and Elizabeth Blegen Remembered; Ploutarchou 9, Celebrated
A Colloquium organized by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens and the J. F. Costopoulos Foundation.
This colloquium aims to present less well known aspects of the couple’s life and interests in Greece, in addition to remembering Carl Blegen’s contributions to prehistoric archaeology (from his early years in Corinthia, to the re-opening of Schliemann’s excavations at Troy in the 1930s, and, finally, to the discovery of the Palace of Nestor at Pylos in the 1950s and 1960s). Papers will be presented by academic researchers from Europe and the USA. The language of the colloquium will be both English and Greek. The colloquium will be open to the public.
