Roman Arms & Arts: Re-enacting Life in Rome's Imperial Legions

When: Thu., Sept. 22, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. 2016

The Roman Myth and Mythmaking show is more than just the main attraction at Gonzaga’s Jundt Art Museum this fall, thanks to its collection of 115 artifacts of everyday Roman life borrowed from several of the country’s leading institutions of ancient Roman expertise. It also serves as the jumping-off point for a free weekly lecture series in the museum auditorium from a wide range of experts each Thursday for the next several months, starting on Sept. 22 with UW professor Alain Gowing speaking on “Myth and Memory in the Roman Historical Imagination,” and continuing Sept. 29 with Reed College prof Ellen Millender speaking on “Livy’s Legendary Ladies.” Also this Thursday (9/22), a group of Roman re-enactors from Oregon visit the campus’s Herak Quad, offering demos from 10 am-4 pm.
