Christopher Davies joins us to talk all about his passion for one of Britain’s archaeological gems – the biggest Roman residence north of the Alps.

Is this Shhhparta?  In this episode Jeff and Dave (with help from Peter Green) make their way toward the narrow pass at Thermopylae and lay the groundwork for one of the most crucial and mythic battles in the history of Western civilization.  What led up to this heroic and tragic encounter?  We watch as Darius the Great gets out-run at Marathon, Darius’ son Xerxes I seeks revenge with a horde of wicker-wearing Immortals, and the Greeks squabble over where to make a stand and how to pronounce “isthmus”.  Join us by channeling your inner Leonidas and inexplicably brushing up on your Scottish accent.
