The Rest Is History

The worldโ€™s most famous classicist, Professor Mary Beard, joins Tom and Dominic to discuss how the legacy of classical Greece and Rome has been interpreted and re-interpreted over the past millennium and a half. They range from Danteโ€™s Satan snacking on Julius Caesarโ€™s assassins in Hell to recent demands in the United States that Classics itself should be cancelled.
