Archaeology - Feb Zoom Meeting
Monday, 8th February, 2 pm: Archaeology,
The Grandeur that was Rome
The talk will be entitled ‘The Grandeur that was Rome’, following on from ‘The Glory that was Greece’. These titles are both from a poem by Edgar Allen about Helen of Troy, as follows:
On desperate seas long wont to roam,
Thy hyacinth hair, thy classic face,
Thy Naiad airs have brought me home
To the glory that was Greece.
And the grandeur that was Rome.
It will be about the origins of Rome and its architecture and archaeology, contrasting this with Greece – briefly!!!!
