The lecture is sponsored by the University of Delaware Department of Art History.

Rose's talk, entitled "Excavations at Troy, 1988-2010," focuses on the material of late Bronze Age date that has been linked to the legend of the Trojan War, including the fortification ditch and the Spring Cave in the Lower City.

The archaeological evidence for Ilion's manipulation of its Trojan heritage is also treated.

The lecture honors Craven, Henry Francis du Pont Professor Emeritus of Art History at UD, who was among the pioneer scholars of his generation in helping establish the field of American art as a legitimate subject of scholarly investigation.
