Professor Ken Dowden delivers the Birmingham and Midlands Classical Association’s New Year lecture.

Where do Greek myths come from?
How, and when, are they created?
What is the point of them?
Why haven’t they passed away like the Ancient Greeks themselves?
Are there modern ‘mythologies’ in the same sense as Greek mythology?

Lecture hosted by The University of Birmingham.
