History is a weapon. The powerful have their version of events, the people have another. And if we understand how the past was forged, we arm ourselves to change the future.
This episode of The History Fix explores how the Roman Empire was eventually destroyed by over-taxation to feed an unsustainable military-political infrastructure.
The next episode examines how a new social and geopolitical system emerged in Europe following the collapse of the Western Roman Empire.
The History Fix is written and presented by Neil Faulkner and produced by Nik Gorecki.
