"A live performance of Homeric storytelling by Hugh Lupton and Daniel Morden (the acclaimed Iliad Project) will be the featured entertainment at the Triennial Meeting of the Greek and Roman Societies in Oxford, UK. The 'Triennial' is the highest-profile event in the UK classical calendar - at once a major classics conference and also a summer celebration of the subject in beautiful surroundings. Held alternately in Oxford and Cambridge, it brings together teachers, students and amateurs of classics from a comprehensive range of backgrounds and sub-disciplines. Plenary lectures of broad interest alternate with thematically designed discussion sessions centred round sets of shorter papers. Other sessions showcase the work of graduate students, and promote group discussion of selected classical texts, including some from the current A-level syllabus. "
