Join Patrick James on a journey through the 'Alexander Romance', a fantastical account of the adventures of Alexander the Great, which take him from Greece, through the Middle East and Central Asia, to India and, even, to China. Discover just how well travelled the 'Romance' is, as one of the most widely translated and adapted texts from Antiquity, with versions not only in Latin and Greek but also Armenian, Syriac, Persian, German, English, and even Mongolian!

For adults. Free.
