Symposium Archaeology of Archaeology project at Troy

ANAMED Auditorium

27 Oct 13:00 - 18:00

Troy is one of the monumental sites in archaeology. Not only because of the connections to Greek mythology, but especially because of its significance for the development of archaeological fieldwork. Excavations have been conducted at the site since the 1860’s and several new methods, approaches and techniques have been introduced at Troy.
Since 2018, a research project has been conducted at Troy to investigate the traces of archaeological excavations. The aim of the project is to assess archaeologically the development of field methods. In this seminar, we hope to discuss whether such an Archaeology of Archaeology is indeed helpful in developing a critical reflection on the process of archaeology itself.
