Nov. 15 talk to assess the impact of ancient urbanism

"Oppidum cadavera: Assessing the Impact of Ancient Urbanism on Modern Europe and Beyond" by John W. Hanson, CU Boulder Research Associate

We know that cities were a hallmark of the ancient world and had a fundamental impact on the development of urbanism in Europe and beyond, but it is still not clear the exact nature of the relationship between ancient and modern urban systems. 

In this talk, Hanson will use new data and innovative methods to explore to what extent ancient urbanism acted as a template for the modern world and what this can tell us about the survival, destruction or resilience of urban systems. 

This lecture is presented by the CU Museum of Natural History in partnership with the Archaeological Institute of America.

Ann Axtell Morris: Breaking new ground

Ann Axtell Morris

Join us Nov. 1 at the CU Museum of Natural History for a free lecture! 

Writer, artist and archaeologist Ann Axtell Morris inspired young people to study archaeology through the publication of two popular field autobiographies, "Digging in Yucatan" and "Digging in the Southwest." 

Her books recounted the excitement of discovery and the meticulous care employed by those seeking meaning from ancient artifacts and architecture. Although overshadowed by her more-famous husband Earl Morris and early 20th-century academics who tended to devalue the contributions of women, this lecture re-examines the significant contributions made by this pioneer archaeologist.
