Did you catch any of the marathon reading of Herodotus' Histories? The brainchild of Professor Tom Harrison of the University of St Andrews, readers were recruited from all around the world, reading in a wide variety of languages: Ancient Greek, modern Greek, Latin, English, Irish, Welsh, Ukranian, Persian, Hebrew, Arabic, Portuguese, Catalan, Mandarin, Croation, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Galician, German, Italian, Luxembourish, Polish, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish.
The expected time for completion of the reading was 26 hours (hence 'marathon'), but as sometimes happens on these occasions, for various reasons including unforeseen complications with technology, that the conclusion of the text was read by Prof. Harrison almost 30 hours later.
In the photo above you can see a screenshot of yours truly! I was thrilled to take part in such an exciting event. The recordings have been posted on the Herotodus Helpline YouTube channel, and you can go there by clicking the button below.
