Join us for an evening with contemporary adventurer Rory Stewart. Stewart, explorer, former diplomat, Conservative Party leadership candidate, bestselling writer and now a Senior Fellow at Yale, will discuss his experiences of walking across Afghanistan in 2002. This event complements our current exhibition, The Romance of Ruins, which focuses on a 1764 expedition to ancient Greek sites in Anatolia, and will explore the parallels between exploring distant lands then and now.
The event begins at 6.00 pm and will last for one hour. You will also have the opportunity to put your questions to Rory Stewart and our host Louise Stewart, co-curator of The Romance of Ruins, in a special 15 minute Q&A session at the end of the event.
