The Institute’s fourth lecture of 2019 will take place on Wednesday 6 March, starting at 7.30 pm in the library of the Institute (Dionysiou Aiginitou 7, ground floor, Ilisia. Metro: Megaro Mousikis). Drs Zisis Bonias (Director Emeritus, Hellenic Ministry of Culture) & Jacques Y. Perreault (Professeur titulaire d'archéologie grecque, Université de Montréal) will give a talk entitled, “Ancient Argilos: Shops, workshops and houses of the merchants’ quarter”.
“Since 2012, the Greek-Canadian synergasia at Ancient Argilos has been excavating a group of large buildings situated in the coastal area of the city. A few of these date to the mid 6th century B.C. and all remain occupied until the conquest of Philip II in 357 B.C. They attest to the economic dynamism of the Northern Greek colonies during the Archaic and Classical periods and give us valuable information on the urbanistic development of these cities.”
You are all most welcome to join us next Wednesday evening to learn more about the Institute’s fieldwork in northern Greece.
