Roman About!

Roman About!

The author Ben Kane visited the Classics department this morning (in full legionary attire!) to speak to Ancient History GCSE students about Hannibal's invasion of Rome. Ben is an author of Roman historical fiction and has conducted extensive research for the novels he has written; he has even marched over 500 miles in full Roman legionary kit to help him to get into the appropriate mind-set!  The students enjoyed the morning and found the experience very useful particularly as they will be studying Hannibal as part of their course. Thank you to Ben for visiting us!
