What do the skeletons which lie beneath the Lion of Chaironeia tell us about ancient warfare and the battle where Alexander and his father defeated the famous Theban Sacred Band? Dr. Maria Liston, University of Waterloo, has analysed the remains to find the answers.
In conjunction with this lecture, the current exhibit at the University of Ottawa's Museum of Classical Antiquities, 'Pay the Ferryman. Death and Dying in the Ancient World', will open at 6:30 PM.
Student volunteers will direct lecture attendees to the lecture hall from the Museum
