Archaeological Tales from Ancient Athens

Ancient Athens was home to Socrates, Plato, Euripides, and Demosthenes; its civic, commercial, and religious center was its Agora. Excavations there have revealed countless stories of everyday ancient life: the recovered traces of shacks and shanties of wartime refugees of the Peloponnesian War; a shield displayed as a trophy from the epic victory against the Spartans in 425 BC; and, moreover, the surprising fate of that shield. University of Manitoba Classics professor Mark Lawall, a specialist in Ancient Greek trade and shipping, will be sharing some of these many stories.
