Because the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 CE preserved the town of Pompeii so well, we know a great deal about the art and architecture that was produced there. But what can be reconstructed of the lives of Pompeii’s inhabitants? Dr. Joanne Berry, of Swansea University, UK, will answer this question for us. She will start by considering a few named high status individuals from Pompeii, and the evidence that can be used to discuss their status, careers, property and families.

"Non-residential Architecture and the Sacred Landscape of Pisanay, Peru," by Dr. Jo Ellen Burkholder

The site of Pisanay sits on a promontory overlooking the Sihuas Valley of Southern Peru. While the food remains, grinding stones, and hearths indicate a residential purpose for the site, its most prominent features - round and semi-subterranean rooms, cist tombs, and petroglyphs - point to ceremonial activities at the site. In turn, these activities link Pisanay to a larger sacred geography extending throughout the Sihuas Valley and beyond.

Vietnamese oral traditions and legendary narratives describe powerful, proto-Vietnamese kingdoms in the Red River Valley of modern-day Vietnam, purportedly in existence during the first millennium BC. By the first century AD, this area had become colonized by the Han Empire of emergent Chinese civilization. Interestingly, ancient Chinese texts generally deny the presence of local and indigenous forms of sociopolitical sophistication. Given these conflicting depictions, archaeology can serve as a means to gather and furnish important new evidence.

How do we know what the people whose material culture we dig up ate and drank, and how did they find, grow, and prepare their food? What kinds of technologies and methods are used to determine whether a pottery vessel was used to transport or store wine as compared to an alcoholic beverage? What did the gruel eaten by the native inhabitants of Wisconsin taste like? How did Iron Age Europeans make their beer?
