TODL Technologies of Daily Life in Ancient Greece
Swansea University will host the first SPHS* Regional Conference on 2-3 July 2015.
Talks on a variety of everyday ancient Greek technologies, some with demonstrations, and all with Q & A, will run from late afternoon on Thursday through to Friday evening, concluding with a reception and lecture at the Waterfront Museum Swansea, sponsored by the Learned Society of Wales, and held there jointly with the British Society for the History of Science. There will be multiple opportunities for delegates to try their hand at some of the ancient arts and crafts featured, such as gem-cutting, food production and preservation, drilling and grinding, and cosmetic-, medicine- and pigment-production.
The conference will be of interest to anyone wanting to learn about the quotidian technologies of Ancient Greece. To register, please click here. Closing date for registration is 12 June 2015.
