Film Description:Professor Colin Renfrew, Senior Research Fellow, McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research at Cambridge University, discusses recent excavations on the Cycladic island of Keros. These excavations have revealed the site of Dhaskalio Kavos as a place of numerous ritual offerings, dating to the Early Bronze Age (ca. 2500 BC). The quality and quantity of painted pottery, stone vessels, and marble sculptures, which were deliberately broken in the course of religious practice before systematically deposited here, provides fresh insight into Early Cycladic life and ritual. Sponsored by the Institute for Aegean Prehistory—INSTAP.
