Spreading the Word: Rome – Story of the Eternal City

This Friday I share with you a video on the history of Ancient Rome. It is not only interesting but also highly entertaining. And isn’t that a sure sign of a good storyteller? So here you go – the first episode of a BBC documentary mini series titled “Meet the Romans with Mary Beard”. It is some 7 years old but that is like a blink of an eye for the eternal city. The series cosists of 3 episodes, each roughly 1 hour long, all available on youtube. After watching the first one, I am totally hooked and will be diving into the story told by Mary Beard in the other two episodes soon enough. Try it out for yourself but be warned – there is a serious risk of being enchanted both by the story and by the storyteller’s talent! Enjoy!

Keeping up the “Spreading the Word” tradition, every Friday, I hope to share with you an article I’ve read or a video I’ve seen and considered it to be inspiring or enlightening. I feel it is important to take good care not just of our physical but also of our mental well-being. Humans have always turned and returned to storytelling. My Fridays’ “Spreading the Word” articles are an online version of sharing worthwhile stories.   

keep exploring and storytelling!
