The Roman Occupation of Britain and its Legacy by Sir Rupert Jackson
This book tells the fascinating story of Roman Britain, beginning with the late pre-Roman Iron Age and ending with the province's independence from Roman rule in AD 409. Writing in a clear, readable and lively style (with a satirical eye to the strange features of past times), Jackson draws on current research to deepen our understanding of Roman Britain.
Ludi Scaenici: Latin Playlets and Roman Theatre by Andrew Downey
Andrew Downey is a long-serving classics teacher at Westminster Under School. The 14 playlets in his book grew out of Ludi Scaenici, a Latin play competition for young Latin pupils in London. The playlets cover everything from school inspections to a reimagining of French footballer Eric Cantona as a Roman Gladiator, Cantonax!

The Quest for Classical Greece: Early Modern Travel to the Greek World by Dr Lucy Pollard
Greece and Asia Minor proved an irresistible lure to English visitors in the seventeenth century. Lucy Pollard shows that these curious travellers imported, alongside their copies of Pausanias and Strabo, a package of assumptions about the societies they discovered.
Spotlight Authors: Generosity of a Family
Donald Robertson (1885-1961)
Regius Professor of Greek at Cambridge
Martin Robertson (1911-2004)
Lincoln Professor of Classical Archaeology and Art at Oxford, and Poet
When the estate of Martin Robertson (notably also the father of Dr Lucy Pollard, above) was wound up in 2023, his executors wanted his and his father Donald Robertson’s royalties to go to a cause they would have approved of. They felt that although neither of them knew about Classics for All, it was a charity whose aims they would both have supported wholeheartedly.
Classics for All are very grateful to the family for their immense generosity and support.
