Scott Stull, SUNY Cortland, on Medieval Novgorod 10/3


Contributed by Dan Breen

Scott Stull, of the Sociology/Anthropology Department at SUNY Cortland, will present a public lecture entitled "The Archaeology of Medieval Novgorod" on Wednesday, October 3, at 6:30 pm in CNS 208.  All are welcome to attend.

Veliky Novgorod was one of the most important cities of medieval Eastern Europe. Located on the Volkhov River, it connected the trading centers of the Baltic Sea and northern Europe with the vast trade networks of Byzantium and the Islamic world. The unique history and setting of Novgorod have led to some of the most remarkable preservation of archaeological materials from the medieval world. This illustrated talk will give an overview and introduction to the medieval history and archaeology of this fascinating city.

Dr. Stull's lecture is co-sponsored by the Finger Lakes Chapter of the New York State Archaeological Association and the Medieval and Renaissance Studies Program at Ithaca College.
