"Sustainable Living in Bronze Age Crete," a lecture by Jennifer Moody of the University of Texas at Austin, is slated for 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 10 in Langford C105 (Texas A&M University, College Station, TX). Moody will discuss the different climates of the Early, Middle and Late Bronze Ages on Crete (ca. 3000-1000 BCE) and the ways in which the ancient Minoans adapted both their architecture and agricultural strategies to reflect the changing environment. A native Texan, Moody has a doctorate in ancient studies. She specializes in the archaeology and environmental history of the Aegean, especially the island of Crete and is author of numerous scholarly publications, including "The Making of the Cretan Landscape" (Manchester University press 1996), which she co-authored with Oliver Rackham. In 1989 she was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship "for extraordinary accomplishments in prehistoric archaeology." The lecture is sponsored the College Station Society of the Archaeological Institute of America and by the Glasscock Humanities Center's Working Group in the History of Art, Architecture and Visual Culture at Texas A&M.
