Popular archaeologists Prof. Timothy E. Gregory and Dr. Lita Tzortzopoulou-Gregory are in Sydney again and will be holding a lecture on November 24th at Sydney University about Kytherian Archaeology.
They will be providing an overview regarding archaeology that's taken place in Kythera by various foreign schools, the Ministry of Culture and Greek academics over the last few decades, plus an update regarding their own work around Paliochora and the Northern part of Kythera.
A bit of a sneak peek from their upcoming book "The Archaeology of Kythera" will also be shown.
Professor Tim and Dr. Lita will also be outlining their new 2011 project, which will commence with a survey of water resources around Karavas.
The presentation will include;
An APKAS, Australian Paliochora-Kythera Archaeological Survey Update...
An update on research and synthesis after the end of fieldwork, which is hoped that will lead to a full-scale analysis of the region around Paliochora (essentially the whole northern part of Kythera), with a special focus on how land was used and how the larges-scale political and economic changes in the broader world affected this part of Kythera, from prehistory down to the present.
A taste of where the APKAS work is going.
The Water Project
A new project, to begin in July 2011, with a focus (at least to start), on a very small area, the immediate region of Karavas, with a deliberate attempt to combine local history, archaeology, and a study of the environment.
The first phase of this project is a survey of the water resources in and around Karavas, including natural resources (springs, streams, etc.), the built environment (water mills, cisterns, irrigation systems), and the way these have interacted with society in the area.
This will be the first project to make use of the resources of the Amirialis Research Centre in Karavas, a building with space and resources to encourage scholars (including students) to study the history and archaeology of Kythera.
A flyer, including map is available here:
