Classical Presences, the North-East, and Vera

I'm speaking next week at the conference ‘Classical Presences in North-East England’, at the University of Durham, the brainchild of Edith Hall. My paper is on Saturday morning, and is entitled ‘“There’s your emperor”. Hadrian’s Wall Country in Vera’. I got very excited when I first came up with this idea, as it is one of the wackier notions for a paper that I’ve had, and yet one I really wanted to do. Fortunately, the conference organisers agreed with me. 

If you want to attend the conference in person, contact Edmund Thomas ( The conference will also be available for virtual attendees; again, contact Edmund.
