Trip to Cahokia Mounds

Sponsored by Western Illinois

AIA Society Event: Western IL (Monmouth)

Saturday, October 22, 2011

Location:
Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site

The Western Illinois Society is planning a trip to the Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site for National Archaeology Day. It will provide society members with an opportunity to see a fantastic and important local archaeological site and also provide a capstone experience for their "Year of Illinois Archaeology." They will take a bus together from west-central Illinois down to the Saint Louis area, take a guided tour of the site, and hopefully participate in some more activities around Cahokia (including a picnic lunch in the park) before returning home.

The Archaeology of the Athenian Agora: Excavations of the World's First Democracy by Michael Laughy

Sponsored by Western Illinois Society of the AIA and Knox College

AIA Society Event: Western IL (Monmouth)

Monday, October 3, 2011 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm

Location:
Knox College, Ford Center for the Fine Arts, Round Room
2 E. South St
Galesburg, IL 61401
United States

The Agora, or public square, of Ancient Athens was the center of the city's intellectual, social, and economic life, as well as where the concept of democracy was first invented and practiced. Excavations of the area began in 1931 and continue to this day, making the Athenian Agora the longest continuously excavated site in all Greece. These excavations have brought to light the government buildings that lined the public square, as well as thousands of objects and inscriptions that were used to run the democracy. In this presentation, we will discuss the ways in which these excavations have both enriched our understanding of the history of world's first democracy, and revealed surprising differences and similarities between ancient and modern democracies.
