Bernd Steinbock attended an international workshop on “Combat Stress in the Pre-Modern” at Manchester Metropolitan University in the UK. Using the final phase of the Athenians’ Sicilian Expedition as a case study, he argued that both circumstantial evidence and Thucydides’ explicit description of the Athenians abandoning their camp make it likely that at least some of the survivor suffered from war-induced trauma.

Kelly Olson gave a talk at the Art Institute of Chicago on "Fashion and Elegance in Ancient Rome."
