Andrew Roberts' presentation was excellent, well organized. His maps of Alexander the Great's military campaigns from Asia Minor to Afghanistan & India were essential to the clarity of his narrative.
There was a lot to cover in just one hour so this seminar started out feeling like a rush through dates, names, places, but within ten minutes we were past that and the seminar began to become deeper and richer, something that continued till the end. By halfway through I was hanging on to every word, aware that I was in the presence of an incredibly knowledgeable, insightful, and brilliant guide to Alexander the Great. The seminar was so very good that I cannot wait to take more seminars from Dr. Roberts and I eagerly await the multi-session course he said he is developing for Context on Alexander the Great. It was evident by the end of this seminar that many others attending it also had their breath taken away by Dr. Robert's fascinating telling of history.
Kind of boring. Expected the talk to be more lively
Easily one of the best Conversations I've seen so far - expert knowledge provocatively presented
Learned a great deal about the tenacity and fierceness
of our ancient hero. History calls him great but what did
he do that we would truly consider great?
