10/03/2012

Contributed by Dan Breen

A reminder that Scott Stull of the Sociology/Anthropology Department at SUNY Cortland will present a public lecture today, at 6:30 pm, in CNS 208.  Dr. Stull's talk is entitled "The Archaeology of Medieval Novgorod."

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 by the Ithaca College Program in Medieval and Renaissance Studies.
