Craven Seminar. Ancient Mediterranean Painting between “Classical” and “Non-Classical” - 17-18/05/20

Archaeological discoveries over the last 100 years have radically transformed our knowledge and understanding of ancient Mediterranean wall painting, and have shed new light on cultures and societies within and beyond the Classical world. This seminar takes an interdisciplinary approach to ancient painting and places it in a complex sociocultural context which crosses the chronological and geographical boundaries of the Greco-Roman world.
