awesome work


Mike, I love your blog, but would it be possible to upload a map showing where the things are happening? I never know where things are going on!

The Maximum Leader

You have an excellent podcast. I think I joined up around Episode 9 and have anticipated weekly updates.


Love the cast. Keep it up!


mmm, maps are great. I'm not really sure their much use in audio format though.

Good to have you back podcasting.


The BBC has a series of 30-minute radio programmes on the Roman Empire here:


Probably of interest to those who find this site fascinating, as I do.

Your podcasts are great. As a child I used to love 'Asterix the Gaul' comic books and I'm now I'm a big fan of 'Rome' the HBO series. So listening to your podcasts is really enjoyable.

I have finally caught up to your latest one and now I can't imagine the agonizing wait for a new podcast to be posted. I'm already worried about what I'll listen to when the History of Rome comes to an end.

In one of your podcasts, could you go over the early history of Romulus and Remus in more detail?

Excellent work!

What I'd like to know is, why the heck did Pompey get into a boat with a couple of strangers and no bodyguard? Couldn't they just beach his ship for him to get off? He was POMPEY after all.



I neglected to go into the details of the incident, but one of the people on the welcoming boat was a trusted former officer of Pompey's who convinced his old general everything was on the level.

Hi Mr. Duncan,
I joined late in the journey and have been feverishly catching up. I had one question though. During an earlier episode, you had discussed the Roman habit of careful logistics rather than the emphasis on individual tactics as a means to success in battle. It seems that Julius Caesar violated that rule with regularity. Was this isolated, or was there a shift in the proceeding Generals and Emperors focus (foci?).

Thanks for a great podcast!

Excellent post.Generally I do not post on blogs, but I would like to say that this post really forced me to do so.
