Coffee and Circuses

By David Walsh

The Roman poet Juvenal once said people are entertained as long as they have 'bread and circuses'. Now we can go one better with 'coffee and circuses'! David Walsh chats to a range of people involved in the study of the Roman World: what led to their interest in this? what projects are they engaged in at the moment? where does the study of the Roman World go in future?
