A Mediterranean Tour of the Ancient Mediterranean
Come and join me for a special tour of the ancient civilizations of the Mediterranean. Five 2-hour sessions will reveal the distinctiveness of each of the cultures. We shall journey from the Neolithic Cycladic, through the Bronze Age with the Mycenaeans and Minoans, joining the Egyptians, Phoenicians and Etruscans, as well as the stunning Archaic and Classical Greeks and, of course, the Romans.
This will be illustrated with beautiful ancient art, and you will encounter these rich, diverse cultures and discover the ebb and flow of the Mediterranean civilizations.
Begins Monday 1st July, 10-12 noon, weekly for 5 Mondays
You are invited to join me for this 4-session Rossett Lifelong Learning course that will explore the beauty and impact of Homer’s epic poems, consider the Classical Greek adaptations of the stories, and the Roman re-use and re-invention of the legends for their own purposes. We shall also take a look at the archaeology of Troy, the ‘real’ Troy that Schliemann infamously dug up and which continued to unearth its secrets. Whether you’ve ever visited Troy before or not, let me take you, in a virtual sense, to this magical site.
