The History of Ancient Greece

By CLNS Media Network

The History of Ancient Greece Podcast is a weekly deep-dive into one of the most influential and fundamental peoples in Western Civilization. Hosted by philhellene Ryan Stitt, THOAG spans over two millennia. From the Bronze Age to Homer, to classical Greek democracy to the Roman conquest, this podcast will tell the history of a fundamental civilization by bringing to life the fascinating stories of all the ancient sources and archaeological discoveries. And not just military and political history, but their society, how the Greeks lived day-to-day, as well as their culture—their art, architecture, philosophy, literature, religion, science, and all the other incredible aspects of the Greek achievement.
