Antiquity in a World of Change, 6th December

Hello everyone,

It’s just time for a bit of shameless self-promotion. On 6th December, I will be co-presenting a paper with Andrew Burnett (former deputy director of the British Museum), at the ‘Antiquity in a World of Change’ study day at the Society of Antiquaries.

The conference focuses on the life and work of Sir Thomas Smith (1513-77), and the wider theme is how engagement with the Roman past sparked innovation and change in sixteenth century England. Other speakers that day include Dr. Richard Simpson, who is an expert on the legacy of Thomas Smith, including his beautiful house, Hill Hall, which was built in the French-influenced classical style and features original sixteenth-century wall paintings.
