Troy in Myth and Matter: Panel Debate on Archaeology, Fiction and the Public

Archaeologists at the Trojan walls, meddling between myth and reality?


Archaeology is just one of the many disciplines that have approached the understanding of the site of Troy and the events in its history. In some ways, it occupies an awkward position between myth and the reality of the site. What is the role of archaeology in the modern consumption of Troy? Do archaeologists just look from the sidelines? A panel discussion will explore these issues in a frank and open manner. A panel discussion with Prof. Susan Sherratt, Dr. Naoise Mac Sweeney, Dr. Andrew Shapland, and Dr. Eva Mol.

This event is co-hosted between UCL Institute of ArchaeologyBritish School at Athens and The British Institute at Ankara. It is free to attend and no registration is necessary, with everyone welcome to a wine reception afterwards.
