Over 8 million people have met Lucius and his dad in two films about the lives of Rome’s children.  Lucius’ creator (Ray Laurence former Professor at the University of Kent) originally set up the blog as a response to questions and discussions on YouTube. Since those early days, the blog has been expanded to include posts on a whole range of topics relating to the ancient world. The posts are written by our wonderful postgraduates and lecturers here at the Department of Classical & Archaeological studies, University of Kent. We hope they inspire you. New posts appear on the Ides of each month (i.e. the 15th of March, May, July and October; 13th of every other month).
