History of Rome followup

This is the one of the best places to go to after history of Rome podcast and also a great place to launch into various middle ages related podcasts. The only podcast really covering in details that transition from the fall of the western empire (delving into how it came about) to the early middle ages. And what’s best is that this isn’t just fluff, but real in depth coverage of latest historical and archaeological finds in simple, layman terms.
