In Ancient History we’re learning about the Julio-Claudian emperors. My favourite part of history is learning about the people, because they’re what makes it so fascinating. As my teacher said today, it’s better to learn the stories, and then the facts and figures because the stories and the people are what get you interested. Try as I might, I just can’t get as excited about the archaeology of Pompeii and Herculaneum as I do about personality studies. I especially love the Julio-Claudians because they were so insane. Like, I’m talking Caligula and Nero here, you don’t get much more evil and crazy than them.
One of my other favourite parts of history is watching Horrible Histories (because I’m really still twelve). I am so snowed under with work at the moment that I’m just going to leave you with my two favourite Caligula videos (and two others I enjoy just because), and a promise to post again soon.
