Scents and Sensibility in the Ancient World

Richard Armstrong, Ph.D.

Frankincense, myrrh, cassia, nard…you may have heard the words, but do they evoke anything for you? Join Classics professor Richard Armstrong in a sensory exploration of the famous scents that filled the ancient world, from the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem to the decadent dinner parties of Rome. Learn about their role in medicine, religion, and the ancient trade networks reaching from Spain to India. No prior knowledge of history required—only a nose for adventure!
