#MaryBeard on looking through Roman eyes

[F]rom the first century BCE … Roman scholars and critics began to pose many of the historical questions that we still pose even now. By a process that combined learned research with a good deal of constructive invention, they pieced together a version of early Rome that we still rely on today. We still see Roman history, at least in part, through first-century BCE eyes. (SPQR – A history of ancient Rome, 2015)

(I’m now reading The Wolf Border by Sarah Hall so I’m interested in this wolf for other reasons too.)
