Several years ago, I worked my way through the entire podcast series, “The History of Rome” by Mike Duncan. It was excellent.
I am planning to go through the series again. In fact, I hope to start again in Greece.
I am teaching my way through Hans Ørberg’s Roma Aeterna at the moment. The book is a 400-page history of Rome, in Latin.
Though the site is a bit difficult to navigate, but trust me. It’s worth it. If you have a dog to walk, a yard to mow, a car to wash, or a long lonely drive ahead, the History of Rome will keep you company.
Warning: There is periodic swearing in this podcast. If I had to rate it, I would rate it PG – 13.
Here is page 6 of the series (Start at page 6 and work your way back): http://thehistoryofrome.typepad.com/the_history_of_rome/page/6/
