Ancient Battles (II): Thermopylae

Eduardo Sánchez Moreno

Eduardo Sánchez Moreno, professor of Ancient History at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, discusses several of the historiographical elements that allow us to understand the battle of Thermopylae (480 BC): land and maritime strategies, armies, geographical constraints, the alliances of the Greek cities and the mystification of the battle, among others. In addition, the lecturer reviews the heroic memory of this outstanding episode of the medical wars, through history, art, literature and cinema.
