Description

Evening Lecture
From Plunder to Partnership: American Adventures in the Archaeology of Cyprus

In the late 19th century, the notorious American consul in Cyprus assembled a vast collection of antiquities and sold them to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Today archaeologists are working together to preserve the island's cultural heritage, recognized as centrally important to the ancient Mediterranean world. Dr. Ellen Herscher, Consulting Scholar, Penn Museum, surveys the most significant American contributions to Cypriot archaeology, with a special focus on the Penn Museum's pioneering excavations in the early 20th century. Sponsored by the Cyprus Society of Greater Philadelphia. Admission: Pay-what-you-want.
