A born teacher and lecturer, Professor Timothy B. Shutt examines the history and culture of ancient Sparta, a society renowned for military excellence and adherence to the values of courage, discipline, duty, and the overcoming of fear. Vastly outnumbered at the Battle of Thermopylae, the Spartan "300" held off an overwhelming Persian force before finally succumbing - but not without inflicting massive casualties and inspiring the rest of the Greeks with the notion that they could persevere.
In this enlightening series of lectures, Professor Shutt delves into Spartan culture, examining its origins, government, religion, and the major events that defined its history.

This is actually a lecture series presented by Prof. Timothy B. Shutt himself. It is very well put together and easy to follow. It covers virtually everything from the Dorian invasion to the time when the Romans took control of Lacedaemonia. I found the Prof. easy to listen to and each lecture was well thought out. Hollywood has polluted the memory of this ancient culture and I highly recommend this to any person wanting to learn the true history of Sparta.
