A BIAA-ARIT Online Lecture by Nick Cahill (University of Wisconsin-Madison, Director of Sardis Excavations)

Sardis was one of the most important ancient cities of western Turkey, the birthplace of coinage, capital of the Lydian king Croesus, and one of the Seven Churches of Asia. In this lecture Nicholas Cahill will share new discoveries, research, and conservation projects of recent years. Among these are new evidence for occupation in the Early Bronze Age, almost a millennium earlier than previously believed; remains of the Palace of Croesus and the capture of Sardis by Cyrus the Great; the largest arch in the Roman world; and information for patronage in the sixth century AD.

Nick Cahill is professor of Art History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Director of the Sardis Expedition. He has worked at Sardis since 1979, and is the author and editor of books and articles on Anatolian, Near Eastern, and Greek archaeology.
