We were thrilled to sit down and talk with Assistant Professor Katharine Huemoeller about her research into the representation of enslaved women during slave revolts in ancient Rome. This conversation reveals plenty of food for thought about the representation of women in the ancient world as well as exploring the way women go on to be represented in later eras.

Dr. Benjamin Anderson, a professor of Classics and History of Art at Cornell University, joins Lexie to chat about his decision process for picking an era & culture to specialize in, his thoughts on whether the study of archaeology is more the study of history or material culture, and whether all Byzantinists are obsessed with Hagia Sophia. So tuck in your togas and hop aboard Trireme Transit for this week’s exciting odyssey!

It’s the end of Season 8! It’s been a wild, weird and wonderful season of ancient mysteries and we are so glad we got to tell you these tales! We’ll be plunging right into our next season the week after this drops–no break this time. Listen in to hear our thoughts about the previous season and our plans for the future. Thank you so much for coming on this journey with us?
