The aim of this conference is to celebrate Sir John Boardman’s life and works. John Boardman, Emeritus Lincoln Professor of Classical Archaeology and Art at the University of Oxford, has published many seminal works, which will remain as a reference for current and future generations of scholars around the world. They address a variety of subjects and, above all, they demonstrate the longevity and beauty of the Classical art, being a source of inspiration for junior and senior researchers alike and considerably increasing our knowledge of the ancient world.
New findings, both in mainland Greek and abroad, in regions directly or indirectly linked with the Greeks, offer an excellent ground to broaden our horizons and reframe old research questions. The encounter of Greeks and natives had different effects and led to various cultural manifestations, the knowledge of which opens new paths for research and raises awareness about the material culture of the ancient world.
