Professor Hall gave three lectures on Greek theatre and the plenary lecture on The World of the Hero (in which she enthused a great number of the audience to visit Butrint in Albania!). Dr Adams used her specialist knowledge of Greek pottery to lead a gallery tour for small groups of teachers and students. Dr Holmes-Henderson and Professor Hall worked with the Schools and Young Audiences team at the British Museum to design additional curriculum-linked Classics events for 2020, as the demand from schools is clearly strong.
A highlight for attendees at the day was a talk from Dr Vicky Donnellan, curator of the excellent Troy: myth and reality exhibition and a subsequent visit to the exhibition to see the many objects on loan from museums and galleries around the world. This was certainly a rare treat, and one which we all enjoyed - academics included!
