Public Invited to Archaeologist Pavel’s University Honors College Lecture Sept. 23
(MURFREESBORO) — Catalin Pavel, who is a doctoral candidate in Bucharest and Oxford and who has excavated archaeological sites in seven countries, will speak at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 23, as part of a University Honors College lecture program.
The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will be held in the Paul W. Martin Sr. Honors Building amphitheatre (Room 106).
Pavel’s talk is titled “The Secrets of the Lower City of Troy,” and is based on the fact that recent archaeological excavations in Troy have proven that the city was 15 times larger than previously thought.
Pavel has excavated at Bibracte in France, Volubilis in Morocco, Haltern in Germany, Adamclissi in Romania, Horcott in the United Kingdom, Miletus in Turkey and in Troy since 2005. He teaches classical art at the University of Bucharest.
Pavel is married to Honors College graduate Carrie Hunsaker (B.S. ’04).
