The Sunday Times best-selling author will be in conversation about his passion for Ancient History and his latest book, The Last Hour,
before doing a question and answer session and signing books.
The hero of The Last Hour, Marcus Clodius Ballista, has been described by Ben Kane as "Jack Reacher in ancient Rome". For readers of Bernard Cornwell, Ben Kane, Simon Scarrow and Conn Iggulden, this is a thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. In Mary Beard's words, "Harry Sidebottom's epic tale starts with a chilling assassination and goes on, and up, from there..."
Harry Sidebottom took his Doctorate in Ancient History at Oxford and has taught at various universities including Oxford, where he lectures in Ancient History. His first book 'Ancient Warfare: A Very Short Introduction' was published in 2004 to critical acclaim, and his best-selling Warrior of Rome historical fiction series has sold over half a million copies.
