2020

 

I am currently working on a history of the study of Greek and Roman antiquity from the 18th century to the present day, provisionally entitled 'The Muse of History'. I am also writing a new edition of Early Greece, and preparing a continuation with colleagues of the commentary on Herodotus.

 

In the evenings, since we live in interesting times, I keep a memory diary under the title `And Suddenly It's Evening'.
