Papyrus Fragments: Lost Stories from Ancient Greece

A talk exploring the lost literature of ancient Greece that survives on fragments of papyrus. A papyrus specialist will detail the journey of these fragments and the challenges of deciphering and protecting them.

Dr Laura Swift from The Open University will be joined by practitioners from theatre company Potential Difference to discuss how they have taken inspiration from these fragments to create a new play inspired by fragmentation and Greek myth.

Organised by The Hellenic Centre
