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.

In this podcast I take three somewhat random topics and, well, you'll find out when you listen. Find out what topic of gossip in an Athenian barbershop caused panic, what types of surgery you could have had, and, finally the other thing in the title. Enjoy!
