VIRTUAL - Greeks Go North: A Trading Port in Aegean Thrace

February 22, 2021 @ 5:30 pm EST Central Time

This is an online event.

AIA Society: Iowa

Lecturer: Nathan T. Arrington

Ancient Thrace was a land of opportunity, adventure, and trouble. This talk presents the results of a Greek-American archaeological expedition that has explored a large trading port on the Thracian sea, south of modern Komotini. Established by Greek colonists in the 7th or 6th cen. BC, the settlement participated in a robust trade network. This talk will present the history of occupation at the site, the evidence for daily life, and the site’s contributions to economic, political, and social history. Excavation and survey have uncovered important information on the settlement and its changing relationship to the landscape, and shed new light on Greek-Thracian interaction.
