Book launch: Richard Hodges, 'The Archaeology of Mediterranean Placemaking'

On Tuesday 17 January, Spencer House will host the launch of a new work entitled The Archaeology of Mediterranean Placemaking by Professor Richard Hodges, President of the American University in Rome.

Lord Rothschild with Lord Sainsbury will present the book, which comes as a result of research and archaeological excavations carried out at Butrint over the last twenty years by Professor Hodges, and comprises ‘a set of interwoven reflections about the archaeology and cultural heritage history of the site where major excavations and a multi-volume series of accompanying scientific publications have made it a key location for our developing understanding of the Roman and Medieval Mediterranean’.

The event is open to all and will begin at 18.00.
