Agriculture around the Aegean: A 'Tour' of Recent Work on Neolithic-Bronze Age Farming with Professor Amy Bogaard (University of Oxford)

In this talk Professor Amy Bogaard uses recent case studies to illustrate the diversity of agricultural strategies in and around the Aegean through the Neolithic and Bronze Age. Amy argues that farming practices must be understood as political strategies, in prehistory just as they are today.

This is the third annual lecture named in honour of Professor Christopher Mee, a leading expert in the archaeology of the Aegean Bronze Age. Chris retired from his post as Charles W Jones Professor of Classical Archaeology at the University of Liverpool in 2013, sadly passing away later that year.

The lecture will take place 5-6pm followed by a free drinks reception for all.Register here.
