My poster for Rick Jones’ talk

The first talk of the second series of “Classics in our Lunchtimes”, a talks series linking the ancient world with later periods. Rick Jones, co-director of the Anglo-American Project at Pompeii (excavations 1994-2006) and expert in social interaction through urbanisation in Pompeii, focuses what it has meant and continues to mean to see Pompeii, from the first tourists to the present day.

Ask for directions to the talk location on arrival at Leeds City Museum.

To listen to this talk, or any of the other talks in the series visit the Classics Talks website. For a list of talks, held on the last Thursday of the month, from October to February, see this post.
