Penelope's Weavings and Unpickings

About

I’m a lecturer in Roman history at the University of Leeds, where I specialise in urban space. Specifically, I analyse the relationship between the organisation and layout of Roman settlements, and the needs and priorities of the communities which lived in them. But my interests aren’t only confined to urban space. I’m passionately interested in all aspects of the ancient world, and its relationship with the modern world. This blog is my place for exploring those interactions – and anything else which occurs to me.

    I wanted to get in touch to ask, if it isn’t too much trouble, if you would please be able to reference us by adding a link to our website (http://www.apadmi.com) from within the article?

    Sorry to contact you via comment box – I couldn’t locate your email address to contact you more privately.

    If you have any questions, please just let me know.

    Kind Regards,

  4. Hello. I have really enjoyed your blog, I’m a huge fan of the Roman period and it’s great to see people join in the frenzy. :)
    I’ve read your Doctor Who “Vale Decem” study and I’m so happy to see you’re a fan too. By what I read, you know Latin and I was wondering if you could help me a bit.
    I’m working on a song which I want to post this Thursday for the new season of Doctor Who. It’s all well and recorded, except I want to add a choir background to it. I tried the lyrics in English, but they don’t sound nearly as good as they do in Latin. I put them through several online translation websites, but I’ve taken a look over some grammar and I very much doubt they’re correct. Your help would be invaluable. I will credit you in the video and you would make the song so much better. :)

    These are the lyrics:A lord of time, victorious
    A man always running away
    Never daring to look behind
    Out of Shame
    Time is yours to use
    And just yours to declare
    The laws are gone
    You’re the last one
    The last of the Lord of Time

    Thank you and I’m looking forward to more posts from you! :)
