At Home on Board: the Kyrenia Ship and the Goods of its Crew
Picture of a Greek city by the sea

Dr. Andrea Berlin, Boston University
October 30 - 7:00 PM HALE 270

The Kyrenia shipwreck, discovered in 1964 off Cyprus, is the best preserved small Greek merchant ship ever found. Its cargo included amphoras, millstones, iron ingots, almonds, oak planks and logs – plus whole and fragmentary vessels that comprised the goods of the crew. Those particular goods provide a glimpse into life on board for the crewmembers ca. 300 B.C. In this lecture Dr. Berlin explains what they can tell us of the place and date of the ship’s final departure and the character of the people working on board and more.

Lecture is free and open to the public. Seating is limited. Doors open at 6:30 PM.

This talk is sponsored by the Archaeological Institute of America, the CU Museum of Natural History, and the CU Department of Classics.
