Palaeolithic Seminar

Palaeolithic Seminar 2023-2024

The Palaeolithic Seminar is embarking on a new cycle, co-organised by the University of Crete and the Ephorate of Palaeoanthropology and Speleology in the Ministry of Culture. Lectures are being organized on the occasion of the exhibition The Origins of Sculpture: Archaeological Finds from the Old World and Lesbos 2.5 million to 50,000 Years Before Present, currently being presented at the Benaki Museum of Greek Culture (27-09-2023 to 07-01-2024) by the University of Crete, the Benaki Museum and the Region of Crete, in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture.

Palaeolithic Seminar 2015-2018

A joint initiative of the University of Crete and the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (Departments of History and Archaeology), the Palaeolithic Seminar (2015-2018) aimed to bring Palaeolithic Archaeology closer to its specialist and wider audience. It was a forum where the results of recent work in the field and the current theoretical trends within the discipline were presented and discussed by researchers and academics from Greece and abroad. Thanks to a sponsorship by the Bodossaki Foundation a large number of seminars are now available online on BLOD (Bodossaki Lectures on Demand). Special thanks are also due to the director of the British School at Athens, Professor John Bennet, for offering hospitality to speakers.
