Matthew Trundle Visiting Lectureship Fund

Matthew was passionate about both people and Classics. Always an active traveller and participant at conferences, as well as a convivial host to visiting scholars, Matthew worked tirelessly to connect Classics and Ancient History in New Zealand to the wider academic community.
