On October 22 at 17:00 Robert Bittlestone, Professor James Diggle and Professor John Underhill will present a seminar at the Mediterranean Hotel, Argostoli on the geological, classical and archaeological discoveries of Odysseus Unbound: The Search for Homer’s Ithaca. The seminar will be illustrated throughout with slides and computer animations and the content is aimed at a non-specialist audience. The talk will be delivered simultaneously in Greek and English.

The setting of the Mediterranean Hotel is especially appropriate for this subject as the bay in which it is located is identified in Odysseus Unbound (p. 149) as the most likely location for Homer’s description in the Odyssey of the failed ambush of Telemachos by Penelope's suitors.

There is no charge for the seminar. Afterwards there will be an opportunity to meet the authors and to relax over a complimentary drink. The book will be on sale at the hotel's bookshop and the authors will be available to sign copies. Reservations for dinner and room bookings can be made by contacting the hotel. The authors are grateful to the management of the hotel for their support for the seminar.
