At the end of last week I was interviewed by The History of Ancient Greece Podcast. They wanted me to talk about classical Greek warfare, on land, and the difficulties involved in reconstructing the mechanics involved. We also discussed the issues in the evidence, problems with using modern models as the basis for our understanding, why the Spartans didn’t win everything at the Olympics, what was the experience of war like, and many more things besides.
I had a great time on the show and it is evident by just how long the interview is! Take a listen, hope you enjoy.
