One Man One Vote? Elections in ancient Rome and today

13:15-13:45 Thursday 30th April 2015

With General Election fever currently gripping the UK, Penny Goodman takes a look at the political system in late Republican Rome. Who could stand for office, how did people vote, and what did candidates need to do to secure a win? The talk will explore the similarities and differences between ancient Roman and modern British elections, and ask what they reveal about the values and priorities of the two societies.

The talk will take place on the Leeds Story Gallery (First Floor of the Leeds City Museum)
