The cultures of ancient Greece and Rome are often seen as the foundations of Western civilisation, providing authoritative models followed by poets, philosophers, artists and devisers of constitutions in later ages. But classical models, though often considered timeless and unchanging, have looked very different from differing perspectives. This programme is concerned with exploring the range of ways in which later cultures have interpreted and responded to ancient literature, works of art and practices.
