Professor Paul Gwynne discusses "Francesco Benci's 'Quinque Martyres'"

It may never have occurred to you to take any interest in Latin epic poetry but do not skip this episode thinking it will not interest you - this is a tale of brutality and redemption and is explained in fascinating detail by Professor Gwynne. In 1583 five Jesuit brothers set out with the intention of founding a new church and mission in India. Their dream was almost immediately, and brutally, terminated by local opposition.

Archaeologist Louise Schofield on Gold Mines, Hyenas and Searching for the Queen of Sheba

Louise Schofield has been working in Ethiopia since 2006, directing archaeological, conservation and development projects in that extraordinary country. The search for the Queen of Sheba brought her to her current site in Tigray, northeastern Ethiopia. Here her excavations have discovered a temple (probably dedicated to a moon god), an ancient battlefield, two cemeteries (including the burial of a 2,000 year-old Ethiopian ‘Sleeping Beauty’) and – most recently – a large palace.
