Classics Day 2024: War and Peace  in the Classical World

June 15 @ 10:00 am 4:00 pm

A stimulating day of lectures presented by some of the UK’s most important classicists.  This year we take inspiration from the British Museum’s amazing exhibition “Legion. Life in the Roman army.”

Immerse yourself in the life and death struggles of the ancient world, understand the daily life of soldiers and their loved ones, the brutality of the battlefield, and a world where war and peace were in constant flux.

City Lit has organised a star-studded line-up of speakers for the event: best-selling author Professor Ian Morris, Stanford University; writer and classicist Dr. Daisy Dunn; classicist and art historian Professor Caroline Vout, University of Cambridge; and the curator of “Legion” exhibition Richard Abdy.

Join us at the British Museum on Saturday 15th June. Sign up for all our Classics Day activities on our website here. City Lit is also offering a series of online and in-person lectures throughout the week.
