It’s all Greek to Me

Teaching ancient Greek history at the moment and I found a couple of videos to go along with the textbook material.  I’ve already warned my students that I’m about two-and-a-half thousand years out of my time period with this stuff, BUT that they shouldn’t worry – I would somehow find a way to tie in my research field (modern & contemporary German history) with whatever we’re studying.

And now, thanks to YouTube, I can tie in the Nazis to the Spartans.  Even better:  I can tie in Hitler with King Leonidas!

And who said history can’t be fun?
