Founding the Gupta Empire, Mayan Classical Period & More! | What We Missed Third Century AD

In our “What We Missed,” we take our first steps exploring the Gupta Empire. As well as discussing the Mayan Civilization’s Classical Period.



Now wrapping our third season and the Third Century, we dive into some items that we have missed along the way! These items include the founding of the Gupta Empire (circa 240AD-280AD) on the Indian subcontinent, a few of the grittier details regarding the Plague of Cyprian, the rise of the Mayan Civilization’s Classical Period, and a few other bits as well.

In addition to an excellent and timeless Patreon submitted question, and catching you up on the history titles we have been enjoying on our own time.

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.
