Reception to follow
Discover the spectacular finds unearthed from the undisturbed burial site of the so-called Griffin Warrior, Prince of Pylos. Dr. Jack L. Davis, Professor of Greek Archaeology at the University of Cincinnati, describes the excavation of this remarkable grave, which included the discovery of four exquisite gold rings. Located a few hundred meters from the Palace of Nestor, though three centuries older, this unanticipated finding has afforded an unparalleled opportunity to examine funerary ritual, gender, and gender distinctions in burial practices.
Full price tickets for the lecture are $20, but students get a discounted price of $15, and members and teachers are $18. For more information and to purchase your tickets online, please visit the ROM website.

In June 2017, a small team led by Carrie Fulton started an underwater survey of a Late Bronze Age anchorage at Maroni-Tsaroukkas, along the south-central coastline of Cyprus. Professor Fulton was joined by University of Toronto graduate student, Naomi Neufeld. In this first season, the team tested a custom-designed camera system for digital recording of the anchorage. Upcoming field seasons will continue documenting the site with new technology. The project is generously funded by the Honor Frost Foundation, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, and the University of Toronto, Mississauga.
