The Shrine of Remembrance was inspired by classical architecture, especially the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

Although the Mausoleum did not house the war dead, its decoration depicted scenes of mythical combat common throughout the ancient Greek world, particularly in Athens – where special arrangements were made for the commemoration of the war dead, especially those who fell at the Battle of Marathon in 490 BC.

This talk looks at the ancient origins of our modern commemoration.
