This week CC went to London’s Hammersmith Hospital to talk to the authors of a new study published in the journal Neurological Sciences. Medical doctors Francesco Maria Galassi and Hutan Ashrafian tell us why they think that Julius Caesar suffered from a series of mini-strokes in his later life – and why we should probably discount the traditional retrospective diagnosis of his illness as epilepsy. You can read a review of the paper on the Guardian website, but first, follow this link to watch our interview!
