Peter Jones – Chalke Valley History Festival

Salisbury

June 24, 2019

3.30pm

Romans inhabited a world where man, knowing nothing about hygiene let alone disease, had no defences against nature. Death was everywhere. In a revealing and entertaining guide to how the Romans confronted their own mortality, Peter Jones will discuss his book Momento Mori, and show us that all the problems associated with old age and death that so transfix us today were already dealt with by our ancient ancestors two thousand years ago.
