Mary Beard on SPQR: The History of Ancient Rome

Welcome to Rome Across Europe!

Have we got a treat for you. Since we love Ancient Rome and all things encompassed by that title, there’s a few people alive today that just have a finger on the pulse of what honestly and truly took place all those centuries ago.

We are excited to present Mary Beard on SPQR: The History of Ancient Rome!

“Beard’s popularizing bent is grounded in a deep knowledge of the arcane, and she gives new insight into the hoariest of topics,” wrote Rebecca Mead in The New Yorker. This fall, the Cambridge Professor launches SPQR, A History of Ancient Rome, with massive fanfare. How to discover why celebrities turn up to her book events, why she’s considered one of the world’s foremost classicists and why, after hearing her speak, you’ll never think of Julius Caesar, Cicero or Black in the same way again.

Till next time, Don’t Stop Rome-ing
