Thomas Brogan, 'Chryssi Island and the Archaeology of a Maritime Community at the Southern Edge of the Minoan World': Virtual Wabash 101, 1:00PM - 2:30PM

Thomas Brogan—Wabash alumnus, Director of the Institute for Aegean Prehistory, and the 2020-21 Martha Sharp Joukowsky Lecturer for the Archaeological Institute of America—will speak about 'Chryssi Island and the Archaeology of a Maritime Community at the Southern Edge of the Minoan World'

This lecture focuses on Bronze Age insular activity and more specifically the archaeology of a Minoan maritime community on Chryssi. Recent excavations of the largest settlement on the island of Chryssi in 2008-2009 and again from 2015-18 have uncovered a specialized maritime community active for a period of 200-400 years from Middle Minoan II-Late Minoan IB and provide significant new evidence for its organization and dependence on major settlements on mainland Crete. The results, which include the clearest context from the Mediterranean for the production of dye from purple shells, also offer interesting perspective on different scales of the Minoan palatial economy: at the level of household, community, and region and new insight into maritime trade routes and exchange networks.
