Bettany Hughes: Venus & Aphrodite

Through ancient art, evocative myth, exciting archaeological revelations and philosophical explorations, Bettany Hughes shows why this immortal goddess endures through to the twenty-first century, and what her journey through time reveals about what matters to us as humans. 

Charting Venus's origins in powerful ancient deities Bettany decodes Venus's relationship to the Greek goddess Aphrodite.

On a voyage of discovery to reveal the truth behind Venus, Hughes reveals how this mythological figure is so much more than nudity, romance and sex. It is the remarkable story of one of antiquity's most potent forces, and the story of human desire – how it transforms who we are and how we behave.
