Classics on the Radio, Video, and Your Bathroom Wall: Links 18 Dec.

Here are some links we found interesting this week!
The Spectator has an article about how the ancient Greeks learned Latin.
The Times Literary Supplement has a review of a book on Roman graffiti in an article entitled Ancient Vandalism.
Stanford Classics Professor Walter Schneidel gave the keynote presentation, What Was the Roman Republic Really Like? at Humanities West and it’s viewable on YouTube.
BBC Radio 4’s In Our Time discusses 400 years of Roman Britain.
Since I mentioned constellations in this week’s Feature Post, I’d be remiss not to point you toward an amazing Rennaisance copy of Hyginus’ De Astronomica held at the New York Public Library.
