Professor Brendan Burke (Associate Professor, UVic) will present a lecture entitled:

Inclusion and Exclusion: Burials in Early Greece

Since 2011 the University of Victoria has been collaborating with Greek and American colleagues to excavate the site of ancient Eleon. This lecture will highlight project results thus far and focus on the location of burials at contemporaneous Mycenaean cemeteries, looking at concepts of inclusion and exclusion among emergent elites.
