Regards croisés sur la Méditerranée

Regards croisés sur la Méditerranée

Les lycéens (1ère & Tale) suivant l'option Langues et Civilisations de l'Antiquité (LCA) ont échangé avec Eve MacDonald, docteur en Archéologie et Histoire de l'Antiquité à l'Université de Cardiff. Voici comment la conférencière a été présentée à son audience par Charlotte P., élève de Terminale.

Over the past few months, my classmates and I have dedicated many hours learning about the Antikythera Mechanism, which was discovered in a shipwreck at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea, (French curriculum for Classics studies: inventer, créer, fabriquer dans l'Antiquité). This discovery, and that of many other shipwrecks, goes to show how the Mediterranean was a hub of economic, scientific and cultural exchange. (French curriculum for Classics studies: La Méditerranée présence des mondes antiques).

There is a living tradition, common to the whole of Europe and to all its citizens, coming from the Mediterranean. The ancient Mediterranean is not only classical Greece and republican Rome, it is a wider space-time, extending into the Byzantine world and medieval Latinity, and taking into account the relations between Europe and the Arab-Muslim world.

We are extremely privileged to have these aspects explored and our questions answered by our speaker over the next couple of hours. She has travelled extensively across Greece, Turkey, North Africa and across the Middle East, and is a dedicated archaeologist and a passionate researcher.

Please welcome Eve MacDonald!
