Emma-Jayne joins David to discuss the OU’s online learning tools, including the creation of the Hadrian: The Roamin’ Emperor game and filming at Delphi. Emma-Jayne also chats about her research on disability and sensory experience in the Roman World, and how bodily experience would have been far more varied then we tend to think, as well as votive offerings and how these might have helped people deal with these issues. Fittingly, just in time for Halloween, they also talk about Emma-Jayne’s work on funerary customs and the process of os resectum, which included removing a finger of the deceased.
