Contact: John McEnroe, Art History
August 6, 2012
With the support of an Emerson Foundation Grant, Adi Fracchia ’14 worked with John McEnroe, the John and Anne Fischer Professor of Fine Arts, on a two-month study of the architecture of Gournia in Crete.
Originally excavated a century ago, Gournia is one of the most important examples of a Bronze Age town in the eastern Mediterranean. The architectural study is an important part of new excavations at the site done through the American School of Classical Studies in Athens under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
