Description

Penn Museum Scholars Lunch Lecture Series

Hasanlu and Urartu

Stephan Kroll, Dyson Fellow, Near East Section

In the course of the excavations at Hasanlu/Iran (1956-1974 by R.H. Dyson Jr. on behalf of the University Museum in Philadelphia) two main Iron Age periods were excavated: Period IVB whose violent destruction was linked to an Urartian expansion into the Urmia region at the end of the 9th century B.C., and Period IIIB, in which the city was rebuilt by the expanding kingdom of Urartu at some time in the 8th or 7th century BCE. Recent research shows, that already from Period IV onwards connections exist between Hasanlu and Urartu, which continue in Period IIIB. Urartu may not have been the devastating enemy it was always assumed.

Guests are welcome to bring their lunch.
