Love ancient history? In my podcast I cover a range of topics from Greece and Rome. Whether you are someone new to the subject or a veteran there’s something for you. There’s even the odd pun.

Magna Graecia: Greeks in Southern Italy.
The Greeks established numerous colonies in southern Italy. In this episode I’m delving into the history of them, how they interacted with local peoples and of course each other. Dancing animals, a drunken diplomatic incident and ‘hands-off’ pottery all feature.
