Retracing the Footsteps of Alexander the Great

In April-May, 2013, Emeritus Professor Bob Milns led a tour-group through Macedonia, in northern Greece, and Turkey, as far as the border with Syria. The aim of the tour was to visit as many places as possible in these two countries which are testified as having been visited by Alexander the Great in the course of his conquest of the Persian Empire. The talk will be illustrated with picture of the various sites and some appropriate and diverting art-works from later ages.
