Sicily: Travels Through Time

Kay Young, Award-winning history instructor, Humanities Endowment fellow in Moscow, and scholar at Oxford presents a special Osher Member’s Only Event — “Sicily: Travels Through Time”

Located in the heart of the Mediterranean, Sicily has seen it all: Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines , Arabs and Normans. Successive waves of settlers and conquerors left a remarkably rich architectural heritage. This lecture will offer an illustrated outline of Sicily’s history and architecture up to the 12th Century.
