Livestream: Letters from Sparta with Cristian Violatti

There is a way in which we can still travel and visit new places despite the current restrictions. Join the free livestream on history and archaeology that will take us on a journey of knowledge and imagination.

In the southeast Peloponnese, removed from the cultural center of Greece, lived the Spartans, whose sole occupation was the study of war. While central Greece was producing philosophers, poets, and scientists, Sparta produced the finest ground forces of the Aegean world. But there is much more to learn about Sparta besides their army: their myths, their culture, and their institutions are still as interesting today as they were to their ancient neighbors. It is no coincidence that the rest of Greece looked at Sparta with a mix of admiration and bewilderments.
