Virtual Cultural Event, on Zoom

by Richard Hodges  


A world class archaeologist describes how a major project in West Tuscany yielded some fascinating new evidence which has transformed our understanding of the end of the Roman Empire and the making of Medieval Europe

Richard Hodges, OBE, is President of the American University of Rome and Professor of Archaeology at the University of East Anglia, UK; he was formerly the Williams Director of the Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, USA, and Director of the British School at Rome.  He has directed several major archaeological digs in Italy and Albania


The talk will last about 40 mins, and will be followed by a discussion using the power of video conferencing.
