Molly Swetnam-Burland, associate professor in the Department of Classical Studies, College of William and Mary, discusses objects as large as obelisks and as small as cameo glass perfume flasks, asking what Romans knew of Egypt and how their conquest of a land they considered exotic transformed their own culture.

Generously sponsored by the Boshell Family Foundation.
