Should the artifacts of history be owned by any country, or should they be shared as common human heritage? If ancient Greek and Roman civilizations remain in many ways the backbone of our culture, society and laws, who gets to interpret them? And what about those with an entirely different lineage, especially indigenous peoples? Who are Classics for and to whom do they belong?


Fabio Colivicchi, Professor
Raphaelle Walsh-Beauchamp, Student
Desmond Wong, Alumnus

This panel discussion and Q&A was recorded with a live audience at the Department of Classics, Queen's University, on 21 March 2019.
