Bettany Hughes – The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World

Tuesday 26 March

Bettany Hughes – The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World

The Seven Wonders of the World were staggeringly audacious impositions on our planet. Now, only the Great Pyramid remains fully standing, yet the scale and majesty of these seven wonders still enthral us today.

Bestselling historian Bettany Hughes will discuss her latest book, a revelatory work of historical storytelling, which journeys through the landscapes of both ancient and modern times, mapping the Seven Wonders, the traces they have left in history and asking why it is we create and why we choose to remember the wonder of others.

‘Bettany Hughes is the most perfect tour guide I know. Her boundless enthusiasm, clarity and learning combined with a matchless gift for storytelling bring the Wonders of the World leapingly alive.’ – Stephen Fry
