The Romans and their gods
Who were the daughters of the night?
How did Arachne so upset Minerva?
Ever seen the underworld?
These colourful fabulous figures enliven the literature of the Romans. But what of their darker side, those mysterious powers with chilling consequences for mortals who err in some way or who are just in the wrong place at the wrong time?

All texts are read in English – and heard in Latin.
