Since 2004 the University of Arizona has been excavating at the sanctuary of Zeus on Mt. Lykaion, known as the “Birthplace of Zeus.” High in the Arcadian mountains of Greece, it has yielded remarkable discoveries over the last 15 years. Human activity at its ash altar began in the Neolithic period (4th millennium B.C.) and continued into the Hellenistic period (about 200 B.C.). An important Mycenaean shrine also sat at the southern peak of the mountain around 1500 B.C., as well as a Sanctuary of Pan and many administrative and athletic structures. This course presents the latest exciting discoveries from Mt. Lykaion within the larger context of other types of sanctuaries in the Greek world.
