After a brief sojourn into Rome on film, the Doctors return to the narrative of Rome’s history from the founding of the city! In this episode, the Doctors examine the continuing Struggle of the Orders, some of the consequences of the strife between the Plebeians and Patricians, and *drum roll please* … we catch our first glimpse of the man who will become Coriolanus. Join us as we explore the depths of the Early Republic!
