Semester 1 Events:

  • Sunday Series: Adrian Heyworth-Smith Lecture – February 5

    Location: Forgan Smith Building, Room E302

    Time: 1:45pm start for 2-4pm

    Join the Friends of Antiquity for the Heyworth-Smith Memorial Lecture: Shopping for the Home from 5th Century BCE Athens to Pompeii in the 1st Century CE, presented by Professor Ray Laurence, Professor of Ancient History, Macquarie University.

    Synopsis: Love it or loathe it, shopping plays a central part in human existence in the 21st century. Whether for perishables or non-perishable goods, when we return home, we sort our purchases and disperse them so that they can be found for retrieval in an attempt to avoid “Where did I put that?” conversations. This Sunday Series sets out to encapsulate human approaches to selection, acquisition and storage in the ancient world and will show that shopping has a long history, whether in democratic Athens or imperial Rome. However, there were major differences to the place of shops and shopping in these two ancient cultures that will be presented to you. Pompeii will be used as a case study to answer: how did shopping shape the artefact assemblages found in houses across the city? Moreover, the talk will allow you to consider the actions and contexts for the choice of material goods that we know so well from Pompeii and contemplate how shopping as a process of selection and transaction shaped the archaeological record.
