In this first episode of our upcoming series with the most excellent "Bad Ancient" Project, Dr. Rees and I take on a variety of subjects that have often been misconstrued and under the guidance of experts like Dr. Rees we set the record straight.

In this video we approach an idea and concept that has gained ground in certain parts of the academic world and that is the question as to whether or not Sparta and the Spartans were a "Communist" state and society?

In this program Dr. Rees superbly guides us through this discussion to arrive at his answer by thoroughly debunking and explaining several misunderstood aspects of Spartan life, their society and economy.

We touch on Spartan money, private property, religion, helots, inheritance, hierarchical structure and so much more!
