Brown Bag Lecture: Northern Greece, Albania and North Mecedonia
October 16, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Richard Leary will present The Past Tense and the Present (is still) Tense: Travel in Northern Greece, Albania and North Mecedonia, a trip that covered an immense period of time, from the Neolithic to the political and economic tensions of the present. He visited Greek, Roman and Byzantine ruins, churches and museums–witnessing the results of 500 years of Ottoman oppression as well as Nazi and communistic oppression. Enjoy tales of lovely scenery, good food, and great wines. Join us for a taste of the history and scenery… but not the food and wine.
Bring your lunch and join us for a different speaker and topic on the third Wednesday of each month. Brown Bag Lectures are held at the ISM Research & Collections Center at 1011 E. Ash St. in Springfield. The Collections Center must be accessed via the gate on Ash St. and approached from 11th Street or further east due to the rail closure at Ash and 10 ½ Streets.
