    Story
    (1087)

    Look beyond the abstract dates and figures, kings and queens, and battles and wars that make up so many historical accounts. Over the course of 48 richly detailed lectures, Professor Garland covers the breadth and depth of human history from the perspective of the so-called ordinary people, from its earliest beginnings through the Middle Ages.

    What did you love best about The Other Side of History: Daily Life in the Ancient World?

    A fascinating affirmation of familiar life down through the ages.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The breadth of this work is so wide as to make it difficult to pick just one favorite character, but the story of an Egyptian couple going out on the town sticks in my mind.


    Have you listened to any of Professor Robert Garland’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    While I have not listened to other works by Professor Garland, I can say that it is delightful to hear his voice, his presence in the topics he addresses that goes beyond tonal quality, replete with a sense of humor one might imagine he was in a mode of self-entertainment while assembling much of his material.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "So you think you have it rough?!"
