UCC DEPARTMENT OF ARCHAEOLOGY - Centenary Lecture Programme

1200 BC and the Big Turmoil

Professor Kristian Kristiansen
University of Gothenberg

This lecture will examine the role of central and northern Europe in the downfall of the Mycenean and Hittite civilizations after 1200 BC. Professor Kristiansen takes a new look at the European evidence to see how effects of political turmoil in the east Mediterranean at this time are reflected in the archaeological record elsewhere in Europe. He also presents new ideas on the origin of the mysterious Sea Peoples.

7pm, Thursday 11th June (Boole 1)

[quote="Marcus Valerius"]I think I might go to this. Cheaper than going to see angels and deamons and certainly more interesting than watching Tom Hanks running around trying to save Chrisendom from a pope [\quote]

And all this was done after surviving a catastrophic failure on his spacecraft in April 1970 :shock: He's quite a man is our Tom ;)

Yes, it is open to the public. It's one of a series of open lectures hosted by the Department to celebrate its Centenary.

The next lecture in the series
Department of Archaeology Centenary Lecture Series

‘Tuberculosis: the plague continues’

Professor Jane Buikstra, School of Human Evolution and Social Change, Arizona State University

Thursday 12 November at 7pm Boole 1

A L L W E L C O M E

School of the Human Environment: Geography and Archaeology

Lecture Abstract
Glossed as the “white plague” during the 19th century, tuberculosis was considered a minor health risk during the second half of the 20th century. Today, however, the disease has re-emerged as a global threat. Long thought to have appeared in the Eastern Mediterranean approximately 8,000 years ago when herd animals transferred bovine Mycobacterium tuberculosis to our species, tuberculosis is now considered to be as old or older than H. sapiens. This shift in perspectives results from rapidly accumulating molecular evidence. In this lecture, I will integrate such molecular perspectives and archaeological evidence to explore the long term relationship between our species and this persistent pathogen.
