Talk by Professor Michael Grant
Two thousand years ago Julius Caesar became dictator for the first time. In his talk Michael Grant , who is Professor of Humanity at Edinburgh University, asks whether the record of Caesar's career makes him a suitable candidate for hero-worship, and suggests that there are dangers in letting schoolchildren suppose that we find his Commentaries wholly admirable in substance as well as in style.
