Join the Nashville Parthenon Virtual Summer Symposia series! This is the last of three Symposia. All three support the new exhibition ‘The Antikythera Mechanism’ at the Nashville Parthenon through September 26.
Dr. Anne Duray will introduce underwater archaeological practice that helps experts interpret our human past. Specifically, Dr. Duray will explain the training and methodology of underwater archaeology to help the virtual audience understand how archaeologists begin to approach underwater sites, and share her personal experiences and anecdotes in underwater and field archaeology. Her talk will include images to explain underwater archaeology tools, methods, and practices, and share how archaeologists map, study, and catalog artifacts. The symposium will help the public understand the dedicated work of archaeology, and preparation needed to undertake archaeological projects. After the presentation, there will be time for questions and discussion.
Dr. Duray holds a Ph.D. in Classics with an Archaeology track from Stanford University and is an Editorial Assistant for the American Journal of Archaeology, and served as a Lecturer at the Archaeology Center at Stanford University.
