Episode 57 – The Struggle of the Orders – Part the First

The Doctors sweep into the turn of the new fasti with a bold return to their narrative history of Rome from the founding of the city. In this episode, Drs R. and G. consider the events of 494/3 BCE and the contextual factors that culminated in the Conflict of the Orders between the patricians and the plebeians.

This struggle is characterised by internal crisis and stands as an early example of class warfare.
