Dr Michael Scott and Ancient Greece

Dr Michael Scott examines the golden wreath of Queen Meda of Macedon in Northern Greece, two and a half thousand years old, from an exhibition in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.

Dr Michael Scott introduces what this programme shall entail - a discussion about luxury impacting on democracy and patriotism, on social harmony and epic courage, and the divine. Which all began in Ancient Greece. There are images of the Parthenon and the Acropolis in Greece, and the exhibition in the Ashmolean.
