The program will be hosted by Peter Weller. A number of historians will be interviewed, including Professor Patrick Hunt of Stanford University and Professor Llwellyn-Jones of the University of Edinburgh.

I too will make a humble appearance on the History Channel program, where I will be asked to address topics pertaining to the Achaemenid military, the Persian Gardens of Cyrus the Great and the gigantic bridge of Xerxes connecting Asia and Europe. Other exciting topis will include Partick Hunt’s discussion of how city-palace of Persepolis was built.
