Title: “Pre-historic Greece” at trowel’s edge: Interrogating old stories about origins, margins, and ruthless barbarians.

Abstract: This lecture focuses on what is often called “Pre-historic Greece”. The very term “pre-historic” has been severely questioned today. Is history the sole privilege of those people who kept written records of their lives that we can access, retrieve, or decipher today? Archaeological research affords significant insights into the histories of peoples once considered “without history” or “pre-“ historic; into the richness of their cultural traditions and the complexity of their lived experiences. Within the borders of what is Modern Greece, communities existed for thousands of years. Interestingly, a mere handful of these have entered our history books and our national imagination as worthy precursors to later glorified historical periods; some are even considered “civilizations”. What renders them so unique and special? The lecture considers examples from the entire span of “Greek prehistory” tracing how contemporary identity politics and other kinds of political aspirations together with well established traditions of approaching the past, such as Hellenism, may determine interpretations of the past in the present.
