Ancient Britain and Classical Art: CARC workshop, 27-28 September 2018

Preparations are under way for our next annual CARC workshop, 'Ancient Britain and Classical Art', to be held in the Ioannou Centre, 66 St Giles', Oxford OX1 3LU on Thursday 27th and Friday 28th September. Generously supported by Jean-David Cahn and Tony Michaels, this workshop examines the complex relationship between the visual cultures of ancient Britain and the Graeco-Roman traditions of the Continent and the Mediterranean over a period of a thousand years. Considering not only the period of Roman Britain but also the art of the pre-Roman Iron Age and the early Anglo-Saxon period, the workshop aims to stimulate dialogue across disciplinary boundaries. The abstract is downloadable here, and further details will follow soon.

The workshop is free and all are welcome to attend, but please book a place by emailing
