Dreamcasting Books for Ancient History Movies

By Ian Worthington

Here are some links which I think make amusing reading. I also use them to challenge students to see if they can do better, and why/why not!

Let @AncientHistMQ know if you can think up better castings!


Ian Worthington

Ian Worthington specializes in ancient Greek history and oratory, with particular emphasis on late Classical and earlier Hellenistic history and Alexander the Great, on which he has published several books and numerous articles (see Publications). He did his B.A. at Hull, M.A. at Durham, both in the U.K., and Ph.D. at Monash University. He was Curators' Distinguished Professor of History and Adjunct Professor of Classical Studies at the University of Missouri before moving to Macquarie as Professor of Ancient History in 2017. He is currently working on a book on Hellenistic and Roman Athens from Alexander the Great to the emperor Hadrian. In addition, he is Editor-in-Chief of Brill's New Jacoby, which to date has published the fragments with commentaries of almost 900 Greek historians and involves a team of over 160 scholars in 16 countries.
