Thursday 25th February 2021, 5-6pm

Virtual event hosted on Microsoft Teams

This free online talk is part of the #OurSharedHumanPast seminar series by the Department of Classics and Archaeology. This week, several members of the Department will be discussing their current projects, explaining the significance of this ground-breaking research: 

  • Alex will speak about her ERC-funded research project “LatinNow”, exploring life, languages and literacy in the western Roman provinces. More information
  • Hannah will discuss her AHRC-funded “Box Office Bears” (BOB) project. BOB combines archival and Zooarchaeological evidence to examine animal baiting in Shakespeare’s England. More information

If you’re thinking of studying Classics, Archaeology, Classical Civilization or Ancient History, these talks will provide a valuable introduction for a general audience. The varied speakers will cover the wide range of research interests, time periods and expertise here in the University of Nottingham’s Department of Classics and Archaeology. 

The event will be hosted on Microsoft Teams via a link that will be shared here prior to the event. Simply follow this Microsoft Teams link to join the event on the day.
