UNH to Host Michael Wood in October 2007

Classics Weeks begins in New Hampshire by proclamation of Governor John Lynch, all in honor of the 10th Anniversary of the John C. Rouman Classical Lecture Series, which has brought world-famous speakers to the state to talk about all aspects of the ancient world. Students, alumni, faculty, staff, and members of the public are invited to a series of celebratory events from Tuesday to Friday centered on the visit of renowned British documentary filmmaker and historian Michael Wood. Mr. Wood has over 70 documentary films to his credit, many of which have been seen to great acclaim on public television stations in the United States—In Search of the Trojan War, Pilgrimage to Karbala, In Search of Shakespeare, Conquistadors, Legacy, In the Footsteps of Alexander the Great, and more. Currently he is working on new films on India and on locating in Iraq the site of the Battle of Gaugamela, the last great battle in Alexander's conquest of the Persian Empire. Wood is an exhilarating speaker who in person and in film brings the past to life again, passionately showing the interconnections between the ancient and medieval worlds and our own. Ancient Greece has been a continual source of inspiration for him, and the entire university community is very pleased to have him on campus to share his love of the classical world with us.
