BSR Lecture - Origins and endings in Italian history

Events • ClassicsArchaeologyHistory • Lecture

Four speakers will address the following questions: what were the hopes and fears of migrants in ancient Italy and how did they differ from those of migrants in more recent history? What were their motivations and how did they hope to be identified and remembered in both life and death?

Elena Isayev (Exeter) and Claire Holleran (Exeter) will delve into the journeys of migrants in ancient Italy, whilst Emma-Jayne Graham (OU) and Hannah Malone (Freie Universität Berlin) will explore ancient and nineteenth-century funerary practices in Italy. The short lectures will highlight the similarities and differences between life journeys throughout history.
