In this video, Dr. Rebecca Futo Kennedy takes us into a very heatedly debated and emotional topic raging from today to the very foundations of the classical world itself and that is the question "were the ancient Macedonians Greek?
Guiding us through modern borders and nationalism in Greece and Macedonia we see two nations struggling in laying claim to the ancient past and its legacy.
From modern statues of Alexander the Great to political rallies that Dr. Kennedy saw throughout Greece she recounts this argument among the ancients, its complications and issues today that continue to be heatedly debated amongst academics and nationalists.
