Cities and Ideas in the Ancient World

with Edith Hall and Bettany Hughes

Wed 18 November 2015,

There’s much we can learn about how cities should and should not work from the cities of the ancient world – especially Greece and Rome. Classicist Edith Hall, author of Introducing the Ancient Greeks, and Bettany Hughes, broadcaster and author of The Hemlock Cup: Socrates, Athens and the Search for the Good Life and a forthcoming history of Istanbul, discuss ancient cities, their ideas and what they can offer us now.
