Logistics in Greek Sanctuaries. Exploring the Human Experience of Visiting the Gods - 13-14-15-16/09

The conference adopts the perspective of the human visitors to Greek sanctuaries, in order to explore the hands-on, logistical experience of someone coming to a Greek cult place. Of interest is how people travelled to the location and once there, the logistics as to where they slept, cooked, ate, drank and took care of their hygiene, but also how trash and waste were handled, how transport and sacrificial animals were fed, and if markets occurred and what was bought and sold. In short, to what extent did the architecture and activities in Greek sanctuaries reflect the needs of the humans and animals present?
