This week Classics Confidential takes you to Clare College, Cambridge to hear Professor Paul Cartledge talk about his fascinating new book: Ancient Greece: A History in Eleven Cities. He takes us on a journey through the eleven cities featured in the volume, explaining why he chose these particular examples – out of more than a thousand – to tell the story of the Greek world. The book is already out in hardback and will be out in paperback this autumn, followed soon after by Professor Cartledge’s next book, A Sacrament in Arms, which is about the Oath of Plataea and its commemoration. We’re looking forward to that one too!
