How did Paris, which was first settled as a fishing village on an island in the Seine in the third century BC, become the world's most beautiful city? Learn how, after 500 years of Roman rule followed by 500 years of Frankish rule, Paris took on its current configuration of Cité - Ville - Université during the Middle Ages, setting the stage for the great urban planners of the 17th and 19th centuries.
Russell Kelley, author of The Making of Paris, will give the first of a series of three lectures accompanied by over 100 images, focusing on the structures that can still be seen today. The series will continue through Lockdown, so keep checking the WICE website for the times of future lectures.
The meeting will take place using the Zoom video conferencing tool.
