Welcome to the second in our series of interviews recorded at the 2011 Classical Association conference in Durham. Anyone with an interest in the ancient Spartans needs to watch this interview with Prof. Stephen Hodkinson from the University of Nottingham! Prof. Hodkinson is – amongst other things -the principal investigator of an AHRC-funded research project called Sparta in Comparative Perspective: Ancient to Modern, and director of the Centre for Spartan and Peloponnesian Studies (CSPS). You can find details of some of his recent publications on his page on academia.edu. But before you do that, click on this link to access our interview!
