UP POMPEII

This is a 1970s TV show. It is the closest you'll get to Pindar. Slightly naughty, and filled with double entendres it takes you to the world of the slave Lurkio and his street in Pompeii. Yes, that POMPEII.

Rudyard and The Centurion

“I’ve marched the companies aboard, the arms are stowed below: Now let another take my sword. Command me not to go! I’ve served in Britain forty years, from Vectis to the Wall, I have none other home than this, nor any life at all.”

Never Alone

This is a book when a Classical God is just on the lips, but you can't quite name him or her. It is a great companion on a trip, or while sitting in front of Starbucks.
