How much truth is there in the comic book stories about the cunning Gauls and the Roman legionaries? How much archaeology can we find in Asterix and Obelix’s adventures brought to us by pop culture? What were the biggest problems the Romans faced when conquering Gaul? If you want to find the answers to these questions, do not miss the talk by Polish archaeologist and history teacher Marcin Gostkowski.
Marcin has a degree in Archaeology and Mediterranean Civilisations from Warsaw University and from 2008 to 2020 he participated in archaeological research activities in more than 15 countries in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. As an avid champion of science communication, he actively cooperates with history museums across Europe. At the moment, he is completing his doctoral thesis on the history of the Crusades.
In English, interpretation to Bulgarian provided.
In partnership with the Polish Institute in Sofia.
