Meet the Greco-Romans, episode 1

Robin Waterfield

In this episode of my new occasional video series, “Meet the Greco-Romans,” I talk to Robin Waterfield, one of the top scholars and translators of Greco-Roman thought.

Robin was born in England in 1952, and received a traditional British private education, which instilled in him a lifelong love for the Classics, and especially Greek.
