This elaborately illustrated lecture will present the results of eleven seasons of excavation by the Archaeological Society of Athens at ‘Petsas House’ in the settlement of the famous Bronze Age palatial center at Mycenae. A look into a complex structure of the 14th century BCE reveals domestic and workshop use together with an expanding role in the socio-political life of the palace. Pottery, as the primary artifact type, is examined within its production, storage, and distribution contexts. A well, excavated within the building complex, provides evidence for the life of the building, for its violent destruction, and for human agency in a post-destruction reclamation phase. The excavator will present material produced in this workshop alongside a picture of life in the building together with evidence for a relationship to the palace through fragments of Linear B tablets and of contact with the greater Mycenaean and Mediterranean world during the 14th c. BCE.

Please join us for our next SPS Seminar, Topology of Genomic Sequences via the Sequential Subword Order, presented by Rafal Komandarczyk of Tulane University.
The seminar will be held Thursday, March 30th from 12:30-1:20 in Monroe 152.
“Algebraic topology is the area of mathematics concerned with properties of spaces. Simple examples of spaces are shapes, such as spheres, cylinders or polyhedra. In particular, algebraic topology provides researchers with powerful algebraic invariants such as Betti numbers or the Euler characteristic, which help to distinguish general spaces. The recent new direction in data analysis (known as Topological Data Analysis or TDA) attempts to capture properties of large data sets by thinking about the data as an abstract shape and using the algebraic invariants as indicators of these properties. In this talk, I will discuss basic constructions and objects of algebraic topology, and show one possible way we can think about genomic sequences as shapes or topological spaces. I will also present experimental evidence that this can be a beneficial approach for the analysis of genomic sequences.” –Dr. Komendarczyk
