Roman video blog: i-claudius.com

Wonderful! Joy upon joys! I finally found a really fun video blog (or is it a "v-log", "vidblog"...?) that I came across months ago. It was a blog on Roman history and I appreciated it because the host comes across as a down-to-earth, approachable guy who has a strong zeal for the past. This is someone who enjoys history and wants to share the beauty of it with others without pretense and ego, able all the while to poke fun at himself and have fun with the subject matter. Kudos.

Sometimes it seems like his zest borders on the fetishistic with his use of period costumes and such. Yet in my books, that's what makes what he does both informative and entertaining to watch for everyone. Even if it's not your cup of tea, you have to give him some credit for the amount of work he puts into it
