The Greco-Persian wars: a rag-tag group of rebels vs the Empire
Here's episode 21 of the podcast, where we let you peek your head round our classroom doors here at History At Our House!
The period of the Greco-Persian wars is one of those triumphant moments in history, where something incredibly good actually happens. History tends to have a lot of muddling forward, and a lot of people making bad decisions. The Greco-Persian wars themselves aren't utterly bereft of any of this, but they are still a mighty triumph, one which made possible a golden age in Athens which gave us a lot of art, science and philosophy which we still enjoy and are moved by today!
