Week One: March 19
Map for Week 1
19 March: Chris Young Reporting:
I was up and waiting at the door at 10 a.m. waiting for the rest of our group to arrive at the hostel. About 4 of us were already here, some having been in for a few days, others (like myself) having arrived the previous afternoon. Around 10:30 everyone started showing up, and it was reassuring to see the rest of the group take shape. At 11, we headed out to the University College of London to occupy our classroom and begin the introductory lectures on Greek art history. After a few pleasantries in the park across from our building, we headed out of the bright London sun to be greeted in the classroom by the whir of the slide projector.
Peter Schultz, a guest lecturer from the American School of Classical Studies in Athens who will be spending the week in London with us, gave us an opening talk about the history of Greek art history, American excavations, and some of the research he himself is undertaking right now. After that, we migrated to the British Museum where we were treated to a very interesting talk by Dr. Paul Roberts about Roman Imperial art. At the conclusion of his talk, our "required work" for the day was done and most of us looked for dinner and our first night out in London.
