Mare Infidum: Shipwrecks, Pirates and Sea Monsters in the Ancient Mediterranean

Join us for this historical sea adventure! 

For centuries, the ancient Mediterranean was dominated by the Romans as they expanded their empire to foreign shores and reaped the huge rewards of seaborne trade and other marine resources. Yet despite Rome’s immense wealth and power, Mare Nostrum (‘our sea’) still presented perils beyond even Roman control: piratical attacks, ships lost at sea, and the most unpredictable of all – the sea monsters.

Join Dr Gillian Shepherd for this online session.
