After a delay caused by last week’s weather, the spring 2019 edition of the Institute for Classical and Medieval Studies (ICMS) Brown Bag seminar series kicked off on Wednesday, February 6 with a discussion of ancient Chinese tomb vessels.
Presented by Kristina Laun, administrative assistant, ITS, the lunchtime talk discussed early Bronze Age Chinese history, funerary art and traditions, and examined four tomb artifacts from the late Shang Dynasty housed in the collection of the Buffalo Museum of Science. Future installments of this series will feature a discussion on Jewish writings about Jesus and an examination of deception as a Homeric virtue.
