Ancient Roman History Podcast

Dr Fiona Radford and Dr Peta Greenfield


We discuss, spar, and laugh our way through different
aspects of the Roman world.

We’d love to have you along for the ride!

Topics we love

The history of Rome from the founding of the City

Roman women and their roles in ancient society

Vesuvius and its consequences for Pompeii and Herculaneum

Roman emperors, their style of rule and their more intimate side

Spartacus: his life as a slave, gladiator, and rebel

The Vestal Virgins: the order, their rituals, and politics



Our podcast is created on the unceded lands of the Dharug and Bidjigal peoples.

We offer our deep respects to Elders past, present, and emerging on these lands and those we travel through to produce this podcast. We offer our gratitude for their continuing care for Country and the knowledges they have upheld for thousands of years.

Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
