A series of Summer lectures beginning this month at Crete’s Knossos Research Center will touch on the latest research into several fascinating fields of study.
Officially launched in 2017, the Knossos Summer Lectures mark the commitment of the British School at Athens to present the results of cutting-edge research of Hellenic culture from prehistory to modern times.
The center invites those interested to join one of their evening discussions with some of the world’s leading figures in the world of Hellenic archaeology, history, and art. (In Greek)
