Biennial Lecture on Harvard’s Excavations at Sardis
Professor Nicholas D. Cahill of the University of Wisconsin-Madison discusses recent excavations at Sardis, jointly sponsored in 1958 by Harvard University and Cornell University, and authorized by the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Since 1979 a member of the Archaeological Exploration of Sardis, situated in western Anatolia, Dr. Cahill has served beginning in 2008 as its director. Recent accomplishments include the discovery of some of the world’s earliest silver coins in a historic context, a new restoration of antiquity’s largest synagogue, and discovery of Roman houses destroyed by a devastating earthquake.
