The Gifford Lectures

The Gifford Lectures were delivered by Professor Mary Beard in May 2019 at the University of Edinburgh. The Gifford Lectures have been delivered every year since 1888. Each year the university chooses an international scholar to deliver this prestigious lecture.

In her Gifford Lectures, Mary Beard explored the relevance of studying classics today and the ethical dilemmas that the study of classics is bound with. You can watch her six lectures here. 

In Our Time is a live BBC radio discussion series exploring a wide variety of historical topics, presented by Melvyn Bragg, since 15 October 1998. This collection of soundclips about the ancient world fetures members of the Cambridge Classcis Faculty.
