Using photographs and video footage taken onsite, this lecture will outline Palmyra’s significance as a key trade post along the Silk Road, describe its major monuments and cultural achievements, and highlight the terrible loss that the destruction of this site would mean to human heritage. Dr. Reichel is Assistant Professor of Mesopotamian Archaeology, University of Toronto, and Associate Curator at the Royal Ontario Museum.

This lecture is part of the Big Picture, a series that looks at issues related to art, culture, and museums and is made possible by generous support from the Louis A. and Frances B. Wagner lecture fund.

Seating is limited. Please arrive early.

Light snacks and refreshments will be served before the lecture from 5:30-6:30. Stickering for auditorium seating will be on a first-come, first-serve basis beginning at 5:30 p.m.
