The first Alderney Literary Festival takes place next week. For those who are able to come, I will be speaking about Herculaneum: "Bringing the Dead of Herculaneum to Life," on Saturday, 21 March at 1530.
I will also be speaking the following day, on Sunday, 22 March at 1400 with Tom Holland and Simon Scarrow at a panel discussion called "Blurring the Boundaries: the Problem of Truth in Historical Literature".
The festival promises to be a great deal of fun. I look forward to seeing you there. The programme is attached as a pdf. Download Printed programme 1A
