While painting the Franks and other Dark Age armies I have been listening to the Fall of Rome podcasts by Patrick Wyman.
Each episode covers a particular topic in depth and presents more detail that is usually found with similar broadcasts.
The Introduction will take you to the podcasts at YouTube. Well worth the time.
