The Plague of War: Athens, Sparta and the Struggle for Ancient Greece

In 431 BC, the long simmering rivalry between the city states of Athens and Sparta erupted into open warfare and, for more than a generation, the two were locked in a life-and-death struggle.

Whole cities were exterminated, their men killed, their women and children enslaved. Join historian Jennifer Roberts as she discusses the conflict in detail — from its history to the murders and lies to the impact of the war on Greece’s cultural life.
