Mike Duncan has announced the end of "The History of Rome" podcast.
I suppose it had to happen eventually.
He finally came to Romulus Augustulus this week.
At the end of the episode, he said that there will be one more wrap up episode as long as the baby doesn't show up within the next week, but the History of Rome is effectively over.
Also, for those asking about medieval podcasts, check out 12 Byzantine Rulers
, which covers the Eastern Roman Empire by profiling the lives of some of the key emperors. The first three predate the fall of the Western Empire, but the rest all come afterwards.
Justinian, in particular, took place less than a century after the fall of the west.
The Byzantine empire held on to literacy much better than the west did, so there's a lot more records of this period than there are in the west. Unfortunately, a lot has been destroyed over the years (thanks a bunch, fourth crusade), but it's still better than what we have from western europe.
Also check out Norman Centuries
. It covers Normandy from the settling by Rollo and his people in the early 10th century, up through the conquest of England, then into the conquests in southern Italy and Sicily.
