Julius Caesar is our travel guide as he takes us through his murderous subjugation of the native Celtic tribal peoples of ancient Gaul. It sounds vaguely like other, recent European colonial conquests...until the natives nearly win.

11:11 this sent shivers down my spine. In Iran where I am originally from women cannot sing, do not have the right to independently file for divorce and have it granted to them, they can be denied the custody of their children, and they are not given the freedom of choice for what they wear. This must be, this IS, how it feels to have your culture destroyed and your freedom snatched from your clenched fists.

Dan on the off chance you actually read this, please do more on ancient warfare and campaigns like this. This was very well done. I come back to listen to it every 6 months or so because there’s so much information in here, and yet the way you discuss it makes it very enjoyable to listen to.

I've heard it said that g*psy is a racial slur, and the people in this group prefer to be referred to as the Romani. ;) you're a great story teller. Also, I think you shouldn't say "the disease did most od the work", while that's true it sort of justifies what happened like a great accident. The genocide of many native american communities was very intentional and systemic and I think its important to say that alot.

Love it but the end doesn’t make much sense. What language are they speaking in Italy? Italian, which is derived from Vulgar Latin and forms the basis of all Romance languages. Celtic languages are a curiosity at best, spoken by a handful of people. Not dead but certainly moribund.

it's frustrating to hear him keep referring to " the disease" that killed native Americans. it was biological warfare straight up, call it what it was.

of course, if anyone ever took rome, the Romans themselves would have been genocides. Since the Romans had their civilization come so close to total annihilation early in their history, they became so militarized. That's why the Roman republic always fought total war.
