More interesting videos from Historia Civilis:
Historia Civilis just published a new video: His Year(s) - Pompey (56 to 52 B.C.E.)
Historia Civilis's videos tend to come in two types: videos about the political history of the Roman Republic, and videos about the military history of the Roman Republic. I'm much more interested in the former than the latter, so I tend to largely ignore his military videos. But boy oh boy do I eat up his videos on Rome's political scene. As I've written before. Despite the minimalist graphics, Historia Civilis does a good job of getting into the nitty-gritty details of Roman politics, political maneuvers, and electioneering.
Most of the events in this video were covered by the book on Cicero I just finished reading. (And if I go even further back in my reading list, these events were also covered in Caesar by Colleen McCullough, which I read some 10 years ago.)
And the street fighting between Milo and Clodius was something I wrote about in my college paper: Organized Gang Warfare in the Late Republic .
