Indo-European words that matter

11 October 2012 kl. 1:00 PM

In 2009, we proudly proclaimed that Indo-European Matters. In 2010, we maintained that Indo-European Still Matters. Last year, in 2011, we firmly established that Indo-European Matters Even More.

This year, in order to truly substantiate our claims of the preceding three years, we have found some Indo-European Words That Matter! These words of undoubtedly incomparable importance will be presented to the public at an afternoon conference during the fourth annual visit of the Roots of Europe international advisory board.

Organizer: Roots of Europe

The lectures are open to the public.
