LECTURE: Helen of Troy - Goddess, Princess, Seductress

17 November 2015 18:30 to 21:00 | London

The British Academy, 10 Carlton House Terrace, SW1Y 5AH

A BIAA Lecture by Dr. Bettany Hughes

Following a decade of research Bettany Hughes explored the figure of Helen of Troy in her cultural, literary and historical guises. 

The ‘World’s Desire’ has been a constant presence in the human imagination for 27 centuries - this evening Hughes will chart those points in the archaeological record where fact and fiction graze. A unique exploration of both historical landscapes and ideas about what it is to be human.
