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).

Assuming you've listened to Part One you'll be itching to know what happened during the eruption and I break down the events of the two days in AD79.

What was the cause of most of the initial deaths and how did the carnage occur exactly? It can get quite graphic as I build up a picture of what it must have been like.
