Description
Professor John Papadopoulos, UCLA, will deliver a lecture sponsored by the Archaeological Institute of America. Abstract: Philip II, father of Alexander the Great, destroyed the city of Methone in 354 B.C. Because nothing was built on top of the destroyed city, the site is unique for archaeologists. The excavation team found classical-period remains and artifacts soon after they started digging. Join us to learn about the latest discoveries at Methone in ancient Greece.
