    Inhaltsangabe

    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.

    The past truly comes alive as you take a series of imaginative leaps into the world of history's anonymous citizens, people such as a Greek soldier marching into battle in the front row of a phalanx; an Egyptian woman putting on makeup before attending an evening party with her husband; a Greek citizen relaxing at a drinking party with the likes of Socrates; a Roman slave captured in war and sent to work in the mines; and a Celtic monk scurrying away with the Book of Kells during a Viking invasion.

    Put yourself in the sandals of ordinary people and discover what it was like to be among history's 99%. What did these everyday people do for a living? What was their home like? What did they eat? What did they wear? What did they do to relax? What were their beliefs about marriage? Religion? The afterlife?

    This extraordinary journey takes you across space and time in an effort to be another person - someone with whom you might not think you have anything at all in common - and come away with an incredible sense of interconnectedness. You'll see the range of possibilities of what it means to be human, making this a journey very much worth taking.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    Great course and great lecturer

    Great overview of 'the other side of history'. The ancient world part of the title is a bit misleading as many lectures are about medieval England, I would have been eager to hear more about civilization outside the European/Mediterranean world instead.

    Hervorragend und unterhaltsam

    Würden Sie The Other Side of History: Daily Life in the Ancient World noch mal anhören? Warum?

    Ja, unbedingt. Wie mit allen Vorlesungen aus der Reihe werden nicht alle Informationen beim ersten Hören verarbeitet. Garland präsentiert und ordnet die Geschichten auch dermaßen unterhaltsam, dass ein erneutes Hören sicherlich dieselbe Freude macht wie der erste Durchgang.

    Welche Figur hat Ihnen am besten gefallen? Warum?

    Besonders schön war es für mich, das Kapitel "Celebrity in Antiquity" zu hören, da ich vor Jahren einmal sein Buch zum Thema las. Eine gute Auffrischung.

    Welche Szene hat Ihnen am besten gefallen?

    Sein Resümee war sehr bewegend.

    Hätten Sie das Hörbuch am liebsten in einem Rutsch durchgehört?

    Ja, und das habe ich auch. Bzw. in einem Wochenende.

    Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

    Grundkenntnisse in Alter Geschichte sind nötig.

    Sehr guter Einblick in die Geschichte des sogenannten kleinen Manns und auch der kleinen Frau. Ich habe mir gleich den nächsten Kurs bestellt. Das Englisch ist gut verständlich

    wonderful speaker and exiting topic

    the speaker really does a great job here. you can feel his enthusiasm for the subject. the topic itself and the facts presented here are harder to judge because im not a history professor. plus you are either enthralled or bored by the topic. i found myself in the former category and loved every bit.

    Throughly enjoyable

    I really enjoyed the vivid storytelling of the daily life of your ancient average joe. Usually history books are about the upper echelons of society, but that doesn't interest me. I want to know how my ancient counterparts lived way back when. This audio book gave me everything I wanted.

    Sound introduction to everyday history

    Concise, knowledgeable, sometimes even funny. Anecdotal evidence features a bit much. Great overview. The medieval part is sadly only pertaining to England, but I would rather have the lecturer talk about stuff he really knows about than just citing others.
    You will meet slaves, women, men, old and infirm people, poor and rich alike. The focus is on the poor, the 'little' people of the past. The lecturer alleviates their status to give them the status they had, often overlooked in older histories: of the carriers of burden for the great empires that could solely exist on the backs of the women and men that carried on with their everyday lives, come crisis, flood, a new religion or an old conqueror.
    Wonderful insight in every chapter.
