Two oxen ahead: ‘traditional’ and ancient farmers in Greece

Monday, March 23, 2015

Professor Paul Halstead (University of Sheffield) will introduce the topic “Two oxen ahead: ‘traditional’ and ancient farmers in Greece”.

Last year Professor Halstead published his study of recent farming practices, and related cultural traditions, in communities around the Mediterranean which enhance our understanding of prehistoric and Greco-Roman societies (“Two Oxen Ahead: Pre-Mechanized Farming in the Mediterranean”, Oxford: Wiley-Blackwell 2014, 384 pp. )

Paul Halstead is Professor of Archaeology at the University of Sheffield. He has edited and contributed to numerous publications, including Bad Year Economics (with John O’Shea), Neolithic Society in Greece (1999), and Food, Cuisine and Society in Prehistoric Greece (with John Barrett, 2004).
