The Byzantine and Historical Archaeologies of Greece and Cyprus: Artefact and landscape studies is the topic of the presentation by Dr. Athanasios Vionis (UCY) for the Archaeological Research Unit’s 55th PUBLIC LECTURE SERIES: CELEBRATING 30 YEARS OF RESEARCH BY THE ARU. The event is the series’ 7th public lecture.
The Byzantine and Historical Archaeologies of Greece and Cyprus: Artefact and landscape studies, Summary
It is accurate to acknowledge that systematic research into Byzantine and Ottoman landscapes, material culture, and life in Greece and Cyprus sprang out of Historical Archaeology, untangling their archaeological marginality only as late as the 1980s and 1990s when archaeologists started to appreciate the rich textual and material legacy of those eras in the framework of regional survey projects. This presentation combines the results of the Artefact and Landscape Studies Laboratory’s (ArtLandS Lab) research activities in the framework of two ongoing projects in central Greece (Boeotia) and Cyprus (Xeros River valley), in an attempt to discuss landscape transformations, social structure, methodological advances and the future of the ‘hybrid’ fields of Byzantine/Medieval and Ottoman/Historical Archaeology.
