Description

Writing as a Popularis: Ancient history outside the university

Tom Holland
Author

Tom Holland talks about how he came to write ancient history for the general reader, and how his books differ - and don’t differ - from those written by academics.

He has adapted Homer, Herodotus, Thucydides and Virgil for the BBC. His translation of Herodotus was published in 2013 by Penguin Classics and in 2016 from Allen Lane, a history of Æthelstan published under the Penguin Monarchs series. In 2007, he was the winner of the Classical Association prize, awarded to ‘the individual who has done most to promote the study of the language, literature and civilisation of Ancient Greece and Rome.’ He is the presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Making History. He has written and presented a number of TV documentaries, on subjects ranging from religion to dinosaurs.
