POSTPONED: The Gordion Cultural Heritage Program as Public Engagement
- Thursday 10 November 2016
- 12:30PM - 1:30PM
- Brown Bag Lunchtime Lecture
Anthropologist and Gordion Project Assistant Director Ayşe Gürsan-Salzmann speaks about The Gordion Archaeological Project in Gordion, Turkey, at this Penn Cultural Heritage Center lunchtime lecture. Using the method of ethnographic analogy from the nearby contemporary villages, the Gordion Project aims to inform the ancient economic practices of the Phrygian kingdom. These investigations have uncovered an impressive portion of the physical fabric of this major administrative center, and furnished unusually plentiful material for evaluating many attributes of life and society in those distant times. As important, the evidence highlights gaps in our understanding, framing fascinating questions for future research to resolve.
