Podcast: Stephen Hodkinson – Classical Sparta (Part 1)

This is the first of two episodes in which we interviewed Professor Stephen Hodkinson from the University of Nottingham (UK). Professor Hodkinson is a widely published and widely respected Spartan specialist who founded the Centre for Spartan and Peloponnesian Studies at the University of Nottingham with his colleague Professor William Cavanagh in 2005. The interview address key themes of Spartan history and will be followed by another interview in which Professor Hodkinson discusses a broader view of Sparta, the role of archaeology in understanding Spartan history and some of the ways Spartan history has been appropriated in more recent years.
