Reviews from the IHR/ICS Anglo-American Conference of Historians

"For the IHR's 81st Anglo-American conference it combined with the Institute of Classical Studies to showcase the full extent of work on classical receptions, welcoming not only those scholars who work on Roman, Greek and Judaeo-Christian legacies and influences, but also historians of the ancient kingdoms and empires of Asia and pre-Colombian America. The reviews in this special issue reflect the themese covered in the conference."
Have a look at the reviews here.
