Keywords:Classical reception studies, impact, theme park studies
AbstractIn November 2015, members of the research project "'Here You Leave Today': Time and Temporality in Theme Parks" and members of the Department of Classics and Ancient History at the University of Exeter joined in the organization of a unique event: the opening to the public, for one day, of the simulation of a theme park with an ancient Roman theme in the Exeter Library. This article explains the genesis and the development of this impact project.
