In this episode we spoke with Professor Andrea Berlin of Boston University about the Levantine Ceramics Project (LCP). What it is, why it is important, and how you can get involved.
Professor Berlin is the James R. Wiseman Chair in Classical Archaeology at Boston University, and the founder of the Levantine Ceramics Project. She’s been excavating in the eastern Mediterranean since 1973, working on projects from Troy, in Turkey to Coptos, in southern Egypt. Her focus is on the eras of the later ancient empires, and is especially interested in understanding the realities of daily life under these regimes, and in exploring the intersection of politics and cultural change in antiquity.
