I am an aspiring Greco-Roman historian currently completing my undergrad. As such I write countless papers on varying historical topics. Before I am about to begin the preliminary research on a large Greco-Roman paper, I go directly to the ROM and head straight for the Greco-Roman exhibit so I can get lost in its inspiring ambience. I always need to be reminded why I am going through this arduous process and having the ability to stare at the magnificent Roman statues and the Mycenaean and Hellenic amphoras allows me to see real-life representations of those cultures rather than just reading information from texts and instills that extra vigour I need to write that A+ paper I always strive for. Thank you ROM for providing me with the tenth muse.
