Deviating from our more recent podcasts that focus on modern media, today we take a step back in time to examine the Third Servile War, the war in which Spartacus the slave fought the armies of Rome as he trekked up and down Italy for over three years. How did this happen? Who was Spartacus? How close do the modern versions of the story adhere to the history? We answer maybe one and a half of those questions. But we learn something nonetheless.
Podcast Edit: in 71 BCE Pompey totally got to celebrate a triumph for defeating Sertorius. Don’t listen to Sagramore.
