To Hell and Back – Floor Talk

April 22 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

$5.00 - $10.00

THE ABBEY MUSEUM OF ART AND ARCHAEOLOGY PRESENTS:

To hell and back again in the Anatolian Bronze Age

Get ready to travel back in time! Imagine that the year is 1200BC; the Late Bronze Age civilisations of the Mediterranean world are collapsing! What is causing this collapse? An invasion from Europe? Famine? Climate Catastrophes? Civil Wars? A Zombie Outbreak!? All these and more (yes, even the zombies!) have all been cited as responsible for this extreme cultural uproar!

Join the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology and guest speaker Mr. Andrew Fairbairn, and explore the rise and fall of cultures from the civilisational collapse that heralded the end of the Early Bronze Age world including that of the Hittite Empire, based in the highlands of central Turkey.

Guest Lecturer, Mr Andrew Fairbairn, is not only an esteemed archaeobotanist, but is an Associate Professor and Australian Research Council Future Fellow in Archaeology at The University of Queensland. Mr Fairbairn is a co-director of the Boncuklu excavation project in Turkey and is currently researching the development of farming and crop trade by early civilisations of the eastern Mediterranean.
