In response to an email from David in New York, Murray explains siege mining in the ancient world.

So, it’s now mid-December and I am taking a break over the Christmas period and month of January. Though, before signing off for the holidays I wanted to leave you all with a different sort of episode to see out the year. I decided to contact my good friend Steve over at The Spartan History Podcast to see if he would be interested in coming on just to talk about Greek history. He has just entered into the Greek and Persian War period, so I thought it would provide lots for us to talk about. Plus, it gave me another reason to go back and chat about the Persian Wars, a period I always enjoy talking about. It had also been quite some time since we last did a collaboration so I thought it was about time to get on air and chat. I also felt we had reached a natural point to take a break in the series since we just wrapped up the First Peloponnesian War. But don’t worry we will be back to continue with the developments in the new year….

Licet annus MMXXII iam ad finem vertat, aliquid nuntiandum restat quod, ni fallor, tua interesse poterit. Die 21 huius mensis Decembris scholam edam, gratuitam atque omnino Latine, de V mendis vitandis cuicumque velit ad maiorem gradum proficere. Si scholam audire vis (aut ‘replay’ accipere), nomen da:

Liv reads part 2 of Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Book IV, translated by Brookes More. More of the cursed house of Thebes, Cadmus and Harmonia, and even… Perseus’ hunt for Medusa and his rescue of Andromeda.
