BSA Friends’ Lecture (online only)
Dr Chrysanthi Gallou, Dr. Jon Henderson & Professor Bill Cavanagh, “Pavlopetri – the Sunken City Explored”
Abstract: Pavlopetri, off the coast of Laconia, Greece, has remains dating from at least 3,500 BC through to the Protogeometric period c.900 BC. Underwater research over the past decade, as a joint project by the Greek Underwater Ephorate and the University of Nottingham, has traced structures over 8 hectares of the seabed consisting of intact domestic buildings, larger public constructions, courtyards, streets, funerary structures, graves and rock-cut tombs. This lecture will review the remains recorded underwater, how they came to be submerged, and will consider the nature of occupation at the site during the Aegean Bronze Age and the role of the town as a gateway port.
