Richard Parkinson, British Museum, discusses a recently published British Museum project on the history of same-sex desire.
The talk will explore issues raised by objects in the collection, ranging from ancient Egyptian papyri to modern gay love scenes filmed in the Museum, to ask a question that concerns us all: how easily can we recognise love in history?
In collaboration with Write Queer London.
