Project History Cage Match #2 - Rome: Overrated?

The second Project History Cage Match is out! You can find the full episode right here or on the British History Podcast feed. In this episode myself and Jamie Jeffers of The British History Podcast argue that Rome is overrated, while Rome's defence is argued by Roifield Brown of How Jamaica Conquered the World, Jordan Harbour of The Twilight Histories Podcast, Ray Harris of The World War II History Podcast and Zack Twamley of When Diplomacy Fails. It is an hour long episode, and we cover a great variety of topics. You should listen if you want to here me argue the Roman army wasn't that great, observe Jamie passionately defend the Celts, see Zack developing a running gag, learn about Roifield's love of Roman currency, know why Carthage gives Jordan the heebie jeebies, and most importantly of all, find out just why Ray was nearly arrested in the library car park.
