We here at Mediterranean Palimpsest have been pretty lax about updating this blog over the last few months. Dissertations will do that. But with such things behind us, and a renewed freedom to speak in the first person plural, it’s time to get back at it. But we’ll start soft, with a quick link to some excellent podcasts on a variety of topics of ancient history and culture from the University of Cincinnati. I know many of the authors and producers of the most recent podcasts from my time at the
Cincinnati American School of Classical Studies at Athens. Take a look:
Episodes already available cover topics related to the ancient city of Pompeii and its destruction, while new series in the coming weeks will feature Cincinnati and its ties to ancient Greek and Roman culture, and Qumran and the Dead Sea Scrolls (to coincide with an exhibit at the Cincinnati Museum Center:http://www.cincymuseum.org/dead-sea-scrolls). These series bring together experts in ancient history, language, and archaeology from our department, from UC’s Judaic Studies Department, and from Hebrew Union College to share their passion and knowledge about the Classical world.
The UC Classics Ancient World Podcasts are suitable for audiences of all ages with an interest in the past, and make a great supplement on a visit to a museum, or for middle school, high school, and college classes!
