Just a quick update.
I was invited to join the Ancient Warfare Magazine pod casting team (in conjunction with the History Network) as a guest, for their edition on the Horsemen of the Steppes. We mainly talked about the ‘barbarian’ tribes from the Greek classical period (the Cimmerians, the Sauromatians, and of course an awful lot about the Scythians). For good measure we also discussed the Amazon myths, which was particularly interesting for me.
These societies are an often neglected area of ancient warfare, so to be able to discuss them without apology was particularly liberating. Thanks to the guys for having me on! See the video podcast here.
