We’re two historians on a mission to spread the word about Ancient Rome. We discuss, spar, and laugh our way through different aspects of the Roman world. We’d love for you to join us on this journey of exploration!
Dr Fiona Radford is an expert on Rome on film and wrote her thesis on Kubrick’s Spartacus. Dr Radford’s research interest in film makes her an exponent of not only Ancient History, but also Reception Studies. Dr Radford’s work has taken her across the globe and into rarely viewed archives.
Dr Peta Greenfield is an expert on the Vestal Virgins, a collective of six priestesses whose aedes (temple) was located at the edge of the Roman forum. Dr Greenfield’s research interests include: the intersection between religion and politics in Rome, the Late Republic (c. 150 BC – 31 BC) and Augustan Period (c. 31 BC – AD 14), and the role of women.
That’s Dr Radford on the left and Dr Greenfield on the right. Together they are the Partial Historians.
