The title of the joint lecture in French and in Greek is, “Argilos, colonie d’Andros (VIIème-IIIème siècles av. n.è): Grecs, Thraces et Macédoniens sur le littoral nord-égéen”. We look forward to seeing you at the Open Meeting!
The last lecture of the 2012/13 Lecture series of the Syllogos Filon tou Istorikou Archeiou tis Archaiologikis Iperesias will take place on Monday May 20th at 6:30 PM at the Istoriko Archeio Building at Odos Psaromylingou 22 on the edge of Kerameikos and Psyrri. Prof. Nanno Marinatos (University of Illinois – Chicago) will give the lecture entitled, «Κλοπή Μουσείου Ηρακλείου, 1938». Using documents from the personal archive of her father, Spyridon Marinatos, she will reconstruct like a crime thriller the organized theft from the Archaeological Museum in Herakleio in 1938 and then how he, Nikolaos Platon and the police eventually solved it. The well-known collector of antiquities Dr. Stylianos Gamalakis and the conservator Zacharis Kanakis play positive roles in this investigation as well. Only one object was not recovered.

Traveling has always been a goal in my life, and traveling to Greece topped the places I wanted to see the most. When I got the opportunity to come to Greece on an internship, I was overjoyed, ecstatic, and a little scared. I had never travelled to Europe before, and never by myself. A new place, a new language, and many new experiences. However, being in Greece these past 3 months has taught me so much about Greece, life, and myself.

I also wanted to learn more about the archaeological world while here in Greece, and I can certainly say that through my work digitizing old archaeological papers, as well as attending many lectures on the subject, and meeting many people who work in the field, I feel much more aware of what being an archaeologist really means - and it’s not all beer and darts!
