Last week I had the pleasure of listening to three different perspectives of the ALIA #National16 Conference, held in Adelaide earlier this year. The speakers, David Faraker, Kate Ross and Rose Holley all agreed that they found presentations from people outside (or to the side of) the library industry the most inspirational and thought provoking.
I attended a lecture hosted by the Friends of ANU Classics Museum in September. That lecture promoted further researcher into Herculaneum, Naples and its artefacts (including connections to my own research).
Imagine this, a villa so big that parts of it haven’t been uncovered yet, a villa so big that over 90 sculptures other artefacts have been found there and taken from it. Imagine, a villa of usually big size in what was once the ancient Roman city of Herculaneum, and today is in a half excavated dig site near the Gulf of Naples.
