The Mausoleum and Melbourne

July 9, 2017 @ 10:00 pm - July 10, 2017 @ 12:00 am

Join Professor Gillian Shepherd and discover the ancient origins of our modern commemoration. The Shrine was inspired by classical architecture such as the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus.
Although the Mausoleum did not house the war dead, its decoration depicts scenes of mythical combat throughout the ancient Greek world, particularly in Athens—where special arrangements were made for the commemoration of the war dead.
