We are thrilled to announce that we will be premiering a very special new episode of the podcast in collaboration with the University of Sydney!
“Often overlooked, but never really absent, are the women of Rome’s early history. While Lucretia is justifiably well-known, she’s not the only woman who deserves a place in our understanding of the growth of Rome under the kings. From Hersilia, wife of Romulus, who gets involved in politics to Tullia who was complicit in the murder of her father, King Servius Tullius, Rome’s early women are less known today but they certainly weren’t boring!”
Hosted by the Chau Chak Wing Museum and co-hosted by the Australasian Women in Ancient World Studies, we will explore the fantastic tales of Rome’s early women by considering their representation in the ancient sources.
