Adventures in Time: Cleopatra




Journey back to Ancient Egypt with the latest instalment in the thrilling new children's history series

Cleopatra has always known she was destined to be Queen of Egypt. And when she defeats her own brother to win the throne, it is clear that the gods are on her side. Join historian Dominic Sandbrook as we follow the most famous queen of all from Alexandria to Rome, through doomed love affairs and epic battles, to the serpent's bite which will change the course of history forever...
