Classics Day 2016 - At the Edges of Empire

Saturday 27 February 2016 – British Museum, BP Auditorium

Journey to the provinces and frontiers of the Classical World and discover literary texts that record life in far-flung regions and outposts, the differences between Rome and Athens, life in Roman Britain and the Ptolemaic Greek colonies around the Mediterranean and in Egypt, plus follow in the footsteps of Alexander The Great as he conquered the east.

Our first Classics Day lecture was dedicated to Elizabeth Teller who recently passed away. Elizabeth taught for over 40 years at City Lit and was instrumental in the creation of Classics Day.
