An Itinerary from Classical Past to Future

Classical Greece is considered to be the influential culture which is linked with the foundation of modern Western culture and stands as the substructure of Western civilization.

The programme addresses these and many more questions through richly illustrated lectures and carefully planned assignments.... [-]
