How peaceful was the Roman Peace – the famous PAX ROMANA? Join me in a look at three great emperors and find out.
“Give me back my legions!” cried the Roman Emperor, but it was too late. Rome’s crushing defeat at the Teutoburg Forest kept most of Germany permanently free from Roman rule. Here is how it happened.

Barry’s awesome - will now have to read his books. The podcasts are so well presented, and naturally he knows a ton - so much fun, jumping for joy here.
Quality and dynamic podcast
As a member of the general interest audience it’s nice to listen to history presented from outside academia but it’s also fun to hear from professionals. I appreciate this podcast very much.
Rolled Over to the Modernists
Excellent history podcast and some great books and suddenly he had to roll over to the modern crowd. Started with BC then had to speak in reverential tones about the Current era and bce. We have to rewrite and rethink everything so the modern snowflakes won’t get triggered. Never mind. My vote is to grow a pair and just stick the BC and AD but you can feel bad if you want.
