Great Lives promo.

Date published: 1/27/2013

Last week, Julius Caesar. This week, Cleopatra.

The University of Mary Washington's "Great Lives" lecture series continues this week with one of history's most fascinating and powerful women. On Tuesday, Jan. 29, Duane W. Roller, author of "Cleopatra: A Biography," will discuss the real Cleopatra. You think you know who she was? Well, there was much more to her than many of the old stories would indicate [see also Mr. Roller's column on D4].

The lecture is open to the public free of charge and begins at 7:30 p.m. in Dodd Auditorium. For further information, call the events information line at 540/654-1065, or visit umw.edu/greatlives.
