Arkeologen Jeremy B. Rutter, professor emeritus vid Dartmouth College, USA, har utsetts till ny hedersdoktor vid Historisk-filosofiska fakulteten. Han ger sin hedersdoktorsföreläsning med titeln Partying in Prehistory: Social Drinking Behaviors in the Bronze Age Aegean.

“All of us are familiar with different social occasions within our own cultures during which drinks of various kinds, whether alcoholic or not, are consumed. But none of us has experienced what it may have been like to drink together between a hundred and a hundred and fifty generations ago in a pre-industrial, prehistoric social setting. So how do archaeologists go about reconstructing the drinking behaviors of such long-past societies, and how believable can their reconstructions be?”
