Equine Art: A Faithful Representation of Reality?

Our next horse history seminar, Equestrian Art: A Faithful Representation of Reality? will take place on 18 March at 4 pm GMT via MS Teams. As usual, the speakers come from a range of disciplinary backgrounds and will discuss representation of horses in different pre-modern cultures. Rosie Mack will explore equine iconography on Greek coinage in the Classical period; as well as examining the ancient sources, her research benefits from personal experience as she has worked with horses professionally for many years. Lonneke Delpeut will give a paper “Looking for reality in ancient Egyptian imagery,” arguing that, while all images in ancient Egypt are based on reality, the question is to what extent the images convey reality. Lonneke’s talk will show how the ancient Egyptian artisans managed to find the balance between conceptual and perceptual display within the Egyptian canon and decorum. Finally, Jennfier Jobst will look into the controversial issue of hyperflexion, as represented in medieval European art. Please note that, while the other papers will be recorded and later available on YouTube, Jennifer’s talk will not be recorded, as her research will be published in a collected volume in the Trivent Rewriting Equestrian History Series.

Faunal Interest Group Symposium: Zooarchaeology BEYOND FOOD

We are pleased to invite friends and colleagues to the second symposium on zooarchaeology hosted by the Archaeology Centre’s Faunal Interest Group (FIG) at the University of Toronto, taking place online on March 19th and 20th, 2021.

Additionally, 2020/21 marks 50 years of zooarchaeological training and research at the Howard G. Savage Faunal Archaeo-Osteology Laboratory at the University of Toronto, and this symposium pays tribute to the founder of the program, Dr. Howard G. Savage.

Colchester Archaeology Talks: Roman Life – Chariot Racing

‘Roman Life – Chariot Racing’

Chariot racing was the greatest spectator sport of the Roman period. With its racing teams, star drivers and celebrity horses, it provided sports fans with all the elements necessary to engage and excite. The fanatical support of a team colour is just of the legacies. Emperors also came to realise that the races served a political role – especially in Rome. The provision of games kept the populace ‘on side’, acting as a safety valve on social unrest.

'A History of Horse Power: The Engine That Built New York City' Webinar

Taxis, subways, pigeons...while these are words commonly associated with New York City today, the first thing to come to mind before the early 1900s would have most likely been horses, horses, and more horses — that's because up until the turn of the 20th century, there were over 100,000 of them living on the island of Manhattan alone. This is the incredible story of the majestic animal that pulled New York City, on all fours, from a small Dutch company town into one of the great cities in the world.

Join New York Adventure Club as we explore 400 years of horses in New York City, and the direct role they played in creating the metropolis we know and love today.
