An international workshop at the Finnish Institute at Athens that has gathered together a range of scholars to present on diverse themes of ancient ethnography, geography, and ‘septentriography’ –i.e. writings on the northern parts of the oikoumene – and to discuss the parameters of the Greek perceptions of ‘northernness’ from a variety of perspectives.
The Finnish Institute at Athens is hosting the 14th Johannes Sundwall lecture on Friday 25th of November at 6 pm. Our speaker is environmental archaeologist, professor emerita Lilian Karali (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens); her presentation ‘Contribution of Archaeomalacological Research to Aegean Archaeology’ delves into the interpretation of seashells found in archaeological contexts. The lecture will be held at the premises of the Swedish Institute at Athens (Mitseon 9), followed by a reception at the Finnish Institute (Zitrou 16).
