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 this podcast I look at some of the animals people kept as pets. Do you know how to catch a monkey with a pair of trousers or which pet needed to be kept from the drinks cabinet?

Well, I'll unwrap the above and hopefully lead us enriched...

Desperately trying to jump on the recent filmic bandwagon I delve into the history of Wonder Woman and her connection to Greek myth. In addition there's how the amazon myth came to be and an overview of some of the female warriors from ancient history.

Ever wondered why or how war elephants ended up being used in the Mediterannean? Probably not, but in this podcast I trace their origins, how they were used and other elephant facts.
