Recent finds in underwater archaeology combined with evidence from terrestrial excavations offer a fascinating reconstruction of trade networks through the Mediterranean from the 4th-1st c. BC. The importance of sea trade in the ancient world cannot be underestimated and as the volume of goods moving through the region grew so did piracy. This talk challenges the notion that pirates and piracy were always a negative aspect of the Classical world and suggests how accusations of piracy were a powerful political tool of Roman expansion.

The largest mounded tomb from the Silla kingdom in Korea was found to be that of a queen, who wore a pure gold crown and a golden belt of leadership. These make it clear that she was a ruling queen, but she does not appear in the official list of kings, although some queens do. How can archaeology solve this mystery, without any writing in the tomb?

Ann Axtell Morris, archaeologist, artist, and author, was the wife of prominent archaeologist, Earl H. Morris, and mother of Colorado State University Professor and archaeologist, Elizabeth A. Morris. Ann accompanied Earl on major, multi-year expeditions sponsored by the Carnegie Institution during the 1920s and 1930s in the U. S. Southwest and Mexico. During those years, she recorded architecture, rock art, murals, landscapes, and expedition work in watercolor paintings and drawings and pioneered methods of documentation that remain in use today.

The traditional focus in ancient Greek warfare has been on the heavily-armed infantryman called the hoplite. For roughly three hundred years (c. 650-350 BC), Greek hoplites, arrayed in the compact mass formation known as the phalanx, dominated the way states waged war. However, over time light-armed soldiers such as slingers, archers, javelin-men, and small-shield bearing soldiers called peltasts increasingly made significant contributions to military engagements.
