Parthenon: The First Monument to Civilization

With David Stuttard, Author. The Parthenon is one of the most iconic buildings of Ancient Greece. Part temple, part treasury, it was also a statement of political power, the embodiment in marble of Pericles’ vision for Athens. Drawing on contemporary literature, David Stuttard presents a challenging re-evaluation of the Parthenon’s purpose.
