New Rome - History of Rome Mike Duncan

This podcast is now so well known that I am going to do the same that I do with In Our Time and only post reviews of exceptional episodes.   The one on Constantine's founding of Constantinople was one such.  In this one Constantine founds a city, sets the currency on a firm footing, murders his son and taxes everyone into the middle of the next financial year.  Oh and his mum discovers the true cross.  All in all, quite a to do list to get through and well done to Constantine for achieving so much and to Mike for explaining it all so clearly.
