Author of Sunday Times bestseller Istanbul, Bettany Hughes joins us to talk about her latest book, Venus & Aphrodite. Using  ancient art, evocative myth, exciting archaeological revelations and philosophical explorations, Bettany shows why this goddess has had such long-lasting allure, from her mythical beginnings in Cyprus, through to the twenty-first century.

This is a remarkable story from an award-winning historian, author and broadcaster, exploring one of antiquity’s most potent forces, and the nature of human desire — how it transforms who we are and how we behave.
