The Roman Olympic Games: British Museum on 16th June

Jump to last reply

The Roman Society has succumbed to Olympic fervour and has a wonderful series planned. It is free to members of course, but anyone can apply online at the British Museum website for a free ticket. You will need to register with the BM site, but no credit card details are required.

To quote from their invitation email:

The Roman Society with the British Museum is celebrating the London Olympics with the following series of lectures:

2.30 Tony Wilmott: Different people, different games? Amphitheatre and community in Roman Britain

3.00 Professor Charlotte Roueché: A globalised sporting culture: Roman contests in the Greek east

3.45 Break

4.30 Professor Mary Beard: The Roman Olympic Games
