Department Seminar: “The Ruination of Dura-Europos: from Trajan to Daesh” (Jennifer Baird, Birbeck University of London)

Examining the ancient and modern ruinations of Dura-Europos on the Syrian Euphrates, this seminar will compare destructions by the Roman army, Sasanian forces, Yale archaeologists, and Daesh, and question the differential way these are understood.
