Dr. Bajeot is incredibly knowledgeable and her talk was very well-researched and contained helpful visuals. She provided historical context around the legend of Cleopatra, and made clear what is and isn't known and which sources were contemporary to the historical period. Yet, she also indulged a bit of fun with the legend into the popular culture of Octavian Rome, the Elizabethan era, and our own.
I so enjoy Jade's lectures. Well presented, fun and very informative.

Great. Fascinating and love all I’m learning.
I totally enjoyed this presentation. I have always had a fascination for Cleopatra and have read a great deal about her over the years, but I learned some new things. The context Dr. Bajeot gave with her photos, maps, etc., and her obviously very deep knowledge of the era and its people was wonderful to experience.
