Cleopatra The Great, The Woman Behind the Legend by Joann Fletcher. Published in paperback by Hodder

This book review by Chris Bond is online:
http://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/features/Goddess-tyrant-and-scholar-the.5481105.jp

and is called
Goddess, tyrant and scholar... the real woman behind the mask of Cleopatra

Excerpt:
MENTION the name Cleopatra to most people and it's likely to conjure images of a sultry Elizabeth Taylor draped over Richard Burton's Marc Antony, or Shakespeare's tragic queen who took her own life with an asp.

Hollywood and the Bard helped cement Cleopatra's legend as a femme fatale whose dangerous liaisons almost brought the Roman empire to its knees. But over the centuries fact and fiction have become blurred, something Joann Fletcher wanted to separate.

The Barnsley-born historian and archaeologist spent five years researching and writing Cleopatra The Great, The Woman Behind the Legend, in a bid to debunk some of the myths surrounding one of history's most iconic figures.
