Upcoming Lecture on the Trojans

January 2, 2009

There’s an interesting lecture occuring on Jan 6th at the Penn Museum as part of it;s Great Sites Lecture Series: The Trojan War — Myth or Fact? Recent Excavations at Troy.

Dr. C. Brian Rose, deputy director at the Penn Museum, speaks about renewed excavations at Troy during the past 20 years that have focused on nine settlements from the beginning of the Bronze age (ca. 3000 BC) through the end of the Byzantine period (ca. aD 1400). An assemblage of gold jewelry in the Museum’s collection, dating to the same period as Heinrich Schliemann’s Treasure, will be on view after the lecture.

    For a minute I thought this might be a discussion of the Rose Bowl game between USC and Penn State yesterday! {grin}

    Wez,

    Not sure if I can. I’ve got cell on Wednesday.

    Andrew,

    Not nice. It’s OK though because PA’s got two teams in the NFL playoffs while LA hasn’t even got an NFL team 😉
