Blackwells, Oxford

Reception at Blackwell's, Oxford

Blackwell's presents Robert Bittlestone and James Diggle who will be discussing the breakthrough theories described and illustrated in Odysseus Unbound: The Search for Homer’s Ithaca. Where is the Ithaca described in such detail in Homer’s Odyssey? Odysseus Unbound proposes sites for all the places described on the island and so lifts the lid on one of the most enduring mysteries of classical scholarship since Schliemann's discovery of Troy. Blackwell's Bookshop, Broad Street, Oxford. Tickets are £2.00 and are redeemable against the purchase of the book on the night.

Publication date of Odysseus Unbound: The Search for Homer’s Ithaca

"Odysseus Unbound offers a brilliant hypothesis to solve one of the oldest puzzles in scholarship, using literary, geological and historical clues. The writing style is wonderfully engaging and very personal, and the many colour images give an excellent sense of the landscape in which the events of the Odyssey are set."

Michael Sharp, Classics Editor, Cambridge University Press
