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).

It's time to turn my attention to the references made to eclipses in antiquity. They appear in palace records, poems and historical writings and across the Mediterranean (including Mesopotamia).

How where they understood? What rituals were observed and how can they be used to date and locate an event? Join me to find out more.
