Over the last few months, Dr G has been working with TED-Ed to spread the word about Vestal Virgins. Herein are the fruits of that collaboration! I’m super excited to have been part of this project and bringing the world of ancient Rome to others is a real treat   🙂 This TED-Ed lesson explores one aspect of the Vestals’ lives: the possibility of live burial.
