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 ancientblogger.com or come say hi on twitter (@ancientblogger).

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.
