Fox_MichaelI believe passionately in making the ancient world as accessible as possible to a wider audience. I regularly talk in schools around the country, write books intended for the popular market as well as articles for national and international newspapers and magazines, take part in radio programmes, and have written and presented several TV series about the ancient world for History Channel, National Geographic, ITV, Nova, SBS and the BBC.

I am the President of the Lytham Saint Annes Classical Association branch (the largest in the country). To see their programme of activities and lectures click here

I am also a co-director of the Classics Hub based at Sidney Stringer School in Coventry, a project sponsored by Classics for All. Find out more here

In 2018 I am also launching my new ancient global history outreach and impact project: This portal has been designed and built to enable people to engage with ancient global history and discover the connections between ancient communities. It was funded by Warwick Strategic and Departmental Impact grants during 2016 and 2017.

In 2018, I am leading Warwick Classics' contribution to the national Advocating Classics Education project. We will be hosting an event in July 2018 and working to create more regional Classics hubs through 2018 and 2019
