Museum Offers Class on Greek Archaeology

Wake Forest University’s Museum of Anthropology will offer “An Introduction to Greek Archaeology: The American Perspective,” a four-week adult education class.

The class, led by archaeologist Carol Zerner, will meet March 5, 12, 19 and 26, from 6:30-9 p.m. in the museum classroom.

Zerner, previously the chief archivist of the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, Greece, has 20 years of experience researching Greek prehistory and classical history.

In a series of slide lectures, Zerner will trace Greek archaeology from the first human settlement during the Paleolithic Period to Aegean classical archaeology. Zerner will continue the chronological survey through the centuries to the emergence of Greece in the modern age. In the final class, she will discuss the field methods involved in American School excavations and studies and will address issues regarding the stolen antiquities trade.

Registration is $65 for community members, $60 for museum members. Teacher recertification credit is available. For more information or to register by March 1, call 759-5282.
