“The influence that Rome has had on the world is immense,” said Teri Kollath, Manager of Academy and Volunteer Services. “We are very excited to have Adrian Kerr back at Shell Point again discussing this very exciting and interesting topic.”
Professor Adrian Kerr is regularly invited to give talks on the Ancient Middle East internationally, and has participated in TV and Radio programs relating to various topics in which he is considered an expert. The purpose of this seminar series is to investigate the familiar highs and lows of the Roman time period. He will discuss the fall of the city in 455AD, and how their influences are carried well into our recent times and traditions. The series will consist of four seminars, with each one focusing on a different stage in the Rise and Fall of Ancient Rome.
