Event description: 

2017 marks the 30th anniversary of the landmark exhibition, Glass of the Caesars, which was held in the British Museum, as well as the USA, Cologne and Rome. It inspired a generation of researchers and curators and still continues to influence our thinking on ancient glass to this day. Glass of the Caesars @ 30 will celebrate the original exhibition, and examine how our knowledge and understanding of Roman glass has changed and developed over the past 30 years. Spanning two days, there will be 25 lectures and 25 posters by international glass scholars from the UK, Europe, USA, Far East, and Australia. Space is limited to only 120 people, plus four dedicated wheelchair places, so early booking is recommended.
