Roman murrhine ware - 'the most costly product of the earth's interior'
Public lecture by Professor and Visiting Distinguished Scholar Michael Vickers (Oxford University). The ancient Roman vessels made of murrhine ware were associated with myrrh -- but fundamental questions remain about it. What was this most beautiful ancient material, that spawned so many imitations then and later? For what was it used? Why does it matter? CU Boulder - Hellems 201. Parking available at 18th and Euclid.
