About the Event
Previous participation and previous knowledge not required.
In this course we will explore ancient methods of secret communication by going back to the original Greek and Latin sources (read in English translation) to find out what secrets the Greeks, Romans, and Near Eastern people sent to each other and in what context. We will discuss if the methods used 2500 years ago were as simple as cryptographers say. Could they have been useful to the Greek and Romans after all?
