Chios: Connections with Asia Minor, Egypt and the Levant in the East Aegean
Associate Professor Lesley Beaumont | University of Sydney
Chios, one of the largest Greek islands, lies in the east Aegean where it has played an important role throughout history as a bridge between the Greek world and the many and varied civilizations that developed further to the east. In this public lecture, Lesley Beaumont explores the island’s links with Asia Minor, Egypt and the Levant. She focuses particularly on evidence provided by the long-lived sanctuary of Apollo at Kato Phana on the south-west coast of Chios, where she co-directed archaeological fieldwork between 1997 and 2006.
Associate Professor Lesley Beaumont is an academic staff member of the Dept. of Archaeology at the University of Sydney and was previously Assistant Director of the British School at Athens. She specialises in Greek archaeology, especially that of Chios and Ionia, of Athens and of the northern Cyclades, as well as the archaeology and social history of children and childhood in Classical antiquity.
The seminars will be held online on Zoom
