Ephesus, located in modern-day Turkey, was one of the largest, most populous and flourishing cities of the Roman Empire. Excavations at its center have uncovered an exceptionally well-preserved structure, Terrace House 2, which was clearly an elite home filled with rich furnishings that were abandoned after catastrophic earthquakes in the 3rd century A.D. In her lecture, "Terrace House 2 in Ephesus," Dr. Sabine Ladst�tter will give a glimpse into the lives of wealthy and prominent Ephesian citizens. She will discuss the challenges of excavation and conservation at the site, and its transition into a large-scale, living restoration workshop and museum.
