Mary Beard: Empress of Rome description

Mary Beard, one of the world’s most famous classicists, talks to Jonty Claypole about bringing the past to life. As the author of over twenty books and numerous television documentaries, Beard has fought to keep the classics in the mainstream. Over her career, this has involved breaking the glass ceiling, reinvigorating public service broadcasting and embracing the power – as well as the perils – of social media. She tells (almost) all about the highs and lows of public intellectualism in the 21st century
