About this course

The time is the 1st century BC, the place: Rome. The Roman Republic has been around for hundreds of years and has started to conquer the Mediterranean world but is confronted at home by civil unrest, slave revolts and the personal ambitions of people like Pompey the Great and Julius Caesar. Fortunes swing between populists and aristocrats, demagogues and dictators. We will follow and analyse this exciting and action packed period which only comes to end when one man takes control under the guise of ‘restoring the Republic’. To find out who, how and why, join this course.
