Nancy Gonlin on Nocturne

May 25, 2023

Nancy Gonlin, coeditor of all three books in the Ancient Nights Trilogy (Archaeology of the Night, Night and Darkness in Ancient Mesoamerica, and After Dark) was a featured guest on Nocturne- a hybrid form of audio storytelling that blends elements of documentary, fiction and sound-art produced by Vanessa Lowe.

Nightways, by Vanessa Lowe on May 22, 2023. Until fairly recently, there was no distinct focus on the archeology of the night. Lacking a specific nighttime lens through which to view relics from the past, archeologists had been missing an opportunity to capture a whole complete portrait of ancient people’s lives. It was kind of like painting a picture and filling in only half the canvas.
