"Great Battles" Evening Lecture - Thermopylae: The Battle for Europe?

Wednesday, May 1, 2013 6:00p
Penn Museum Philadelphia, PA

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 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 and Europeans in later periods, in art and poetry.
