Episode 276 – Pax: War and Peace in Rome’s Golden Age with Tom Holland

The History of Byzantium

Tom Holland is the author of half a dozen brilliant books on the ancient world. He has now written three on the Roman Empire. The latest ‘Pax’ takes the story from the death of Nero to that of Hadrian. It’s the golden age of Roman power and yet insecurity and anxiety lie under the surface. I talk to Tom about how he gains insight into people so utterly different to us.
