SICILY: the kingdom in the sun Jane Angelini Wednesday 23 October 2019

Sicily has been both a gateway and a crossroads attracting a long line of colonisers from the Greeks, Phoenicians, Romans and Arabs to the Normans and Spanish. Three lectures look at Sicily during the ancient and medieval periods especially the Greek temples and the beautifully preserved Roman Villa Casale, and the monuments from the Arab - Norman period when Palermo was the most intellectually active and artistically eclectic centre in Europe.

Tickets at £33 per person, including lunch, will be on sale to members immediately prior to our monthly lectures on Wednesday 4th September and Wednesday 2nd October.
