Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in the Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Professor of Greek culture at the University of Cambridge Paul Cartledge uses the histories of 11 major Greek cities to demonstrate the most important themes in ancient Greek history. He ranges from the first documented use of the Greek language in 1400 BC through to the foundation of the Byzantine empire in 330AD. Cartledge is professor of Greek culture in the Faculty of Classics, University of Cambridge.
