Barbarians, political breakdown, economic collapse, mass migration, pillaging and plunder. The fall of the Roman Empire has been studied for years, but genetics, climate science, forensic science, network models, and globalization studies have reshaped our understanding of one of the most important events in human history. PhD historian and specialist Patrick Wyman brings the cutting edge of history to listeners in plain, relatable English.

Customer Reviews


PATS THE GREATEST!!!!!! (The shows really good too)

Five star

I really liked the show. I heard about it on Twitter I think. It was good. I really like he would discuss multiple opinions. Looking forward to more.

Promising first episode

Very enjoyable & informative, looking forward to more episodes! Could maybe do with a bit of editing out of flubbed line reads/ sharp intakes of breath, but those are minor production quibbles. The content is outstanding.
