How did war change people's lives? Join Dr Manuela Dal Borgo to consider how war can move people away from their homes, work, family and sometimes even across the sea. These changes can have longlasting effects on the economy of the places from which they emigrate as well as the places to which they immigrate. This lunchtime talk will explore the economics of warfare in a few cases from the ancient world.

The talk will run from 13.15-13.45, with 15 minutes for questions.

The Museum of Classical Archaeology will also be open, for event attendees who may wish the visit.
