Bettany Hughes Talks Love Through The Ages with Stephen Fry

Bettany Hughes featured on Google Arts and Culture’s TeawithB to chat with Stephen Fry about love through history, including a segment on Bettany’s speciality: the goddess Aphrodite.

In the time it takes to make a cup of tea, the two classics experts share some fantastic insight into the humourless goddess and her rivalry with the beautiful Psyche as well as the remarkable Ain Sakri figurine, the first-ever depiction of sexual intercourse.
