Alexander the Great: King and God?

A silver coin from around 287-281 BC showing Alexander with attributes of Zeus Ammon (ROM Collection)

Alexander the Great (336-323 BC), was king of Macedon and conqueror of the Persian Empire. But before he died at the age of 32 did he also believe that he had become a god?

Speaker: Dr Hugh Bowden, Senior Lecturer in Ancient History at King's College London, who is currently writing A Very Short Introduction to Alexander the Great, explores this fascinating question.
