At 2pm in the DeNault Auditorium of Grimm Hall at Concordia University, Justin Walsh, Associate Professor of Art History and Archaeology at Chapman University, will describe the implications of his excavation in Cástulo, Spain. Justin notes that Ancient Greek pottery can be found in museum collections around the world. Most of this Greek pottery was actually found far from where it was made. It was exported over long distances, across the Mediterranean, and even over the Alps in northern Europe. This talk will describe the wide range of contexts in which Greek pottery has been found, and it will suggest different ways for understanding just why people who were not Greek (and probably knew nothing about Greece) might have wanted to acquire these pots.
