Crunchy leaves, hot cider and Classics Day
Classics Day, held every other fall, brings hundreds of guests from around the Midwest to campus. The day focuses primarily on ancient Greece and Rome. But it also features demonstrations, exhibitions and representatives from other cultures, time periods and geographic regions, such as ancient Egypt, classical Japan, classical China, classical India and the indigenous peoples of our local region.
Classics Day VI will be Saturday, Sept. 30, 2023, at the Trubeck Amphitheater. It is free and open to the public.
Activities and demonstrations have included: ancient Greek Olympics; ancient-style weaving; ancient technology and engineering; Greek, Macedonian and Roman military demonstrations; Greek and Roman art works from the College’s Shields Collection of Art and Antiquities; and Native American artifacts from our archaeology lab.
