Twilight Cities: Lost Capitals of the Mediterranean
October 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Of the many cities that dot the Mediterranean coastline, Tyre, Carthage, Syracuse, Ravenna and Antioch are among the oldest and most intriguing. All are beautifully situated, and for history and cultural riches they are rivalled only by their sister cities of Rome, Istanbul and Jerusalem.
Yet their fates have been remarkably different. Once major power centres, all have declined into relative obscurity.
Nevertheless, their entwined history takes in Alexander the Great, Nebuchadnezzar, Archimedes and the Roman, Byzantine, and the Arab and Norman conquests.
In this event Katherine Pangonis brings us on a journey through these ancient sites.
