Virgil’s ‘Aeneid’: Epic Insight into Augustan Rome

Saturday 5 March 2022, 10.00AM to 1.15pm

Speaker(s): Gillian Hovell BA ‘The Muddy Archaeologist’

Revel in Virgil’s stunning epic poetry and rich mythology with a pantheon of gods, combined with the values and dreams of Augustus and his new Augustan Rome and re-marketing of Rome's past. The ‘Aeneid’ reveals great insights into the Roman psyche; it also owes so much to the literature of the Greeks whom Aeneas, Virgil's Trojan hero, had been fighting. Myths, history, politics, personalities, wonderful poetry and a great story of Greece and Rome and its legacy. It's all here.
