Episode one features Dr Liz Gloyn from the Department of Classics who explains why ancient monsters have continued to hold such a prominent position in western culture and why our perceptions of them are changing.

Tiberius Gracchus had introduced property laws that, while unpopular with the ruling elite, went down well with the people of Rome. You can please some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time. But that’s just politics, isn’t it? Nothing to lose your head over. Guest: Associate Professor Rhiannon Evans (Classics and Ancient History, La Trobe University)

Richard joins David for a two-part episode, reflecting on how the study of Roman Britain has evolved since he published ‘My Roman Britain’, his unique writing style, reviewer feedback – both to him and from him, and how his own approach to material nearly saw him axed from teaching Roman Britain at UCL.

He also discusses how he came to lecturer in archaeology, starting as a schoolboy digging in Cirencester, to studying biochemistry at university and working as a school-teacher for a while, his subsequent journey around Europe collecting data on Roman coins, and the unexpected turn of events that helped him to fund a PhD. Along the way, he recalls meeting the who’s-who of Roman studies: Ian Richmond, Mortimer Wheeler, Molly Cotton, Shepperd Frere …and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Rome didn’t get a permanent theatre until the late republic, but when they finally did it impressed all who saw it. The theatre of Pompey stood in the campus martias and entertained Romans for hundreds of years, ensuring the name of Pompeius Magnus was known by all. Oh, and Julius Caesar was killed there.
