Thursday, March 31 at 7:00 pm

Join us at Athens-Clarke County Library on March 31 for a discussion of Neo-Assyrian pottery. Dr Alice Hunt investigates the social and symbolic meaning of Palace Ware in the Neo-Assyrian empire and its territories. Traditionally, Palace Ware has been equated with imperial identity. By understanding these vessels as a vehicle through which relationships were negotiated and maintained she reveals their complexity, gaining a more nuanced view of imperial dynamics.

Dr Hunt is the author of Palace Ware Across the Neo-Assyrian Imperial Landscape, the first work of its kind; providing in-depth analysis of the characteristic, production technology, and raw material provenance of Palace Ware, and locating these data within the larger narratives of power, presentation, symbol and meaning that shaped the Neo-Assyrian imperial landscape.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Athens-Clarke County Library at (706) 613-3650, extension 343. The Athens-Clarke County Library is located at 2025 Baxter Street, Athens.
