Travel, displacement, religious pilgrimage – these are just some of the motivations for ancient migration, but how and why did people move from one place to another in antiquity? This week, Chelsea and Melissa are joined by Dr. Marie-Adeline Le Guennec, a historian of Roman mobility and migration. Listen in as Dr. Le Guennec talks about the ways in which women moved around the Roman Empire, the few sources that document this movement, and how modern scholars examine issues of mobility in the Roman world. We guarantee: this episode will really move you!

This play takes place after the end of the Trojan War and after the death of Agamemnon. While there’s a recap in the episode, you can listen to the full story in this Spotify playlist.
