Leventis Foundation, are happy to announce a day of research talks on various topics in Classical studies on 28th June, 2018 (starting at 9:30 AM and ending about 6 PM).

The one-day conference will take place on UCL’s Bloomsbury campus, in room 347 of the School of Slavic and East European Studies (16 Taviton St London, WC1H 0BW). There is no fee for attendance, and everyone who is interested in coming is cordially invited.
