Antonine Wall, Invention of Paper, Year of the FIVE Emperors & More! | WHAT WE MISSED 2nd CENTURY

From the Antonine Wall to The Year of the Five Emperors, in the 2nd Century we haven’t been able to cover it all. Now they get their due!



As has become the tradition for A.D. History at the conclusion of every season, Paul and Patrick touch on the topics they missed. For whatever reason, these very interesting and worthy topics did not make the initial cut… until now! Topics such as the lesser known Antonine Wall, the invention of what we know as modern paper, and the exceptional chaos of The Year of the Five Emperors.

The A.D. History Podcast explores the last two thousand years of world history in an innovative new way. Join hosts Paul K. DiCostanzo and Patrick Foote as they examine the past two millennia, beginning in 1 AD, and progressing forward ten years every episode until they reach the modern day. Within each ten-year installment, Paul and Patrick aim to share incredibly important, but often overlooked fascinating historic events and figures from around the world in prospective fashion; attempting to see history through the eyes and in the world of those who lived it. By identifying these sometimes lesser known - but in no way less significant aspects of history - the A.D. History Podcast endeavors to take these many disparate threads and weave a fuller, richer tapestry of true world history from 1AD to HD.
