CYA Virtual Lecture ‘Daily Life on a Byzantine Frontier’ Rescheduled for October 11

ATHENS – College Year in Athens (CYA) announced that its Virtual Lecture titled ‘Daily Life on a Byzantine Frontier: The Skythian Dimension’ will take place on Wednesday, October 11, 12 PM Eastern / 7 PM Athens time, via Zoom. The lecture had originally been scheduled for October 4, but due to unforeseen circumstances was postponed to October 11.

Guest speaker John Karavas, professor of history and archaeology at CYA, will delve into the captivating findings from the excavations at the historical site of Halmyris. Located at the Danube Delta, Halmyris served as a Roman/Byzantine urban hub with military and maritime significance.

Guiding the discussion will be CYA Professor Nikos Tsivikis, a Byzantine archaeologist and art historian.
