How to read Herodotus

Here’s the recording from tonight’s call:

   How to start reading Herotodus –

We had a good call this week to go over “how to read Herodotus.”

We discussed:

– how to read the maps (and I instructed folks on how to number the map pages for easy reference during the reading; I also pointed out where key places are)

– the “structural outline” in the appendix (make sure to take a look at it)

– some of the first stories about the Lydians, Persians etc in Book 1

More on this soon…
