31st January 2013

Penny Goodman, presents some results from a survey her students conducted in Leeds about Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus, better known as Augustus. 

Augustus had a keen eye to image manipulation and may be surprised by what people know, or think they know, about him 2,000 years later. The talk will provide a fascinating insight into perceptions of the classical world, particularly ancient history, today.

Penny is a researcherblogger and Doctor Who enthusiast. She is the author of a recent article on Augustus on screen,  and has recently appeared on Leeds Radio.
