Surely the ultimate Roman ‘A’ lister, Caesar was an extraordinary figure of contrasts: a military genius, an imperialist responsible for the death of millions, an aristocrat, yet a charismatic man of the people, and (ultimately) an assassinated dictator, hated by the senate.
Caesar is associated with so many famous phrases: ‘beware the Ides of March’, ‘Crossing the Rubicon’, ‘veni, vidi, vici’, ‘the die is cast’ and et tu, Brute (he never said it!).
In this live podcast recording of the 100th episode of Emperors of Rome podcast, Rhiannon Evans and Matt Smith will look at the moments which propelled Caesar to his death, from the moment he did cross the Rubicon to that fateful date with destiny on 15th March, 44 BCE.
Also joining us on stage will be Dr Gillian Shepherd for a discussion about the Augustan monument the Ara Pacis.
