Enjoy this bonus episode of the Endless Knot with Aven McMaster and Mark Sundaram recorded at Sound Education 2019!

Hello everyone! Despite the title of the episode we will wrap up the lives of Germanicus, Maroboduus, and Arminius.  Three important characters who played a significant role in the reestablishment of the Roman Northern border and only one of them will live 10 years afterwards.  We will be discussing the price paid by these three and the immediate aftermath within Germania after the Roman threat is no more.

Tres amici de signis hiemis advenientis colloquuntur.
