Classicists in Transition, a podcast by the Ghent Institute for Classical Studies, hosted by Dimitri Van Limbergen and Alison John.   In this episode, we talk to dr. Serena Causo on the theme of judgement!

Chris Naunton joined me on the podcast to talk about the work of the many people who contributed to our understanding of ancient Egypt. 

Emlyn Dodd is a Fellow at the Australian Archaeological Institute in Athens and is currently directing a survey project across Cycladic islands which, among other things, is investigating the production of wine and oil in the Classical to Late Antique eras. He spoke to Tristan about what the evidence from Pompeii tells us about grape growth and wine production there, and whether this can be scaled out to other settlements in the Roman Mediterranean. 

It’s 453 BCE and just as Rome seems to be heading towards a legal milestone disaster strikes: it’s a plague!
