"Great Battles" Evening Lecture
Thermopylae: The Battle for Europe?
Dr. Jeremy McInerny, Professor of Classical Studies, examines the tactics and strategy of the Battle of Thermopylae (in present-day Greece) in 480 BCE. Why was the battle fought at this location and was it, as it is often portrayed, a turning point in the confrontation of East and West? This lecture puts the Battle of Thermopylae into the context of the Persian Wars, and examines the battle's significance for the Greeks as well as for Europeans in later periods, in art and poetry. Admission with advance registration: $5, general public; $2, Penn Museum members; $10 at the door based on availability. To register, go to www.penn.museum/greatbattles. For more information, call 215.898.2680.
