Context brings the brightest minds to your living room with perspective-shifting online lectures.
Livia's series has allowed me to virtually experience the National Museum as though I had been there; and stimulate me to re-engage with Roman history. This lecture rounds out the series, and shows the power of careful stratigraphic research in reconstructing Roman lifestyles over nearly a millennium. She also connects the archaeologist's work to the museum curator's and ultimately to creating a very beneficial public site. The Crypta Balbi is indeed a work of many hands. Brava, Livia!
I enjoy Livia's elegant speech and insights. The context and details are always fascinating.
