The Histories by Herodotus


See the ancient world through the eyes of a contemporary as Dr Mike Smith discusses The Histories by Herodotus. Written in about 440 BCE, this book is considered the first ‘history’ in Western literature. An account of the traditions, politics, geography and conflicts in the Mediterranean world, it also attempts to identify and explain the cause and effect of the events it records.
