Our last regular lecture of the academic year will be held on Thursday, April 12 at 6 pm. Bridget Buxton (Associate Professor of History at the University of Rhode Island) will present “Recent Underwater Discoveries in Israel.” Members may remember that Bridget gave a fascinating lecture to our society just two years ago on the ‘big ships’ of the Hellenistic era. This time she will be sharing some exciting discoveries made since 2016. Sponsored by the Richmond Society of the Archaeological Institute of America and the University of Richmond Department of Classical Studies, the lecture is free and open to the public.
