Ancient History Hound

Hi there, this is the Ancient History Hound, a podcast where I look at ancient Greece and Rome and some of the less covered aspects of them. If you love ancient history, tangents and the odd pun then I reckon you'll enjoy it here.

Find my articles and vlogs at my website or come say hi on twitter (@ancientblogger).

In the second episode on Spartan Women I look at what an adult woman might have got up to. From quite a curious marriage ceremony through to the terrifying prospect of a Spartan mother. It's all here.

The first of two episodes where I discuss the experiences a Spartan woman had throughout her life.

Part one includes a general overview of Sparta before I recount what it might have been like for a Spartan as she grew up.

In this episode I am looking at how Carthage expanded into the Iberian Peninsula and how this location furnished Hannibal with the means to march on Rome.

In this episode I discuss how Thersites, Scamander and Sarpedon shape the way we understand the Iliad, other characters in it and even wider themes.

Ok, we always hear about the Saturnalia around the Festive period,  but what about the Haloa? This was an ancient Greek Festival which involved highly suggestive food, drunken shenanigans and bad language. Listen to me discuss what happened and why.
