Lost Civilizations: The Barbarians with Peter Bogucki

Lost Civilizations: Peter Bogucki

Lost civilizations, discovered worlds. Among our great fascinations have long been the stories of the people, cultures and artifacts lying buried and unknown until unearthed by archaeologists.

Join us as we begin an exciting new 92U class in collaboration with Reaktion Books, distinguished UK publisher of the acclaimed series Lost Civilizations. We’ll explore some of the great civilizations of the ancient world, looking at how their vanished cultures, art and history have been rescued from oblivion.

Students will come away with new insights into these lost worlds and their relevance to us today from the renowned scholars and experts who wrote the books dedicated to each topic.

May 25: The Barbarians with Peter Bogucki, prizewinning author of The Barbarians, Princeton dean and archaeologist

Ancient Greece and Rome were not the lone incubators of Western culture. Peter Bogucki opens eyes to the forgotten non-literate communities from the lands north of the Greek and Roman peninsulas, whose distinct cultural practices, complex societal structures and technological accomplishments from the Stone Age to the collapse of the Roman Empire have been discovered through remarkable archaeological finds, expanding our understanding of classical antiquity.

This class will be recorded for later viewing by patrons.
