Alexander the Great is Dead! What Happened Next?

Calling all lovers of ancient history! Tristan Hughes, producer and present at History Hit, and host of The Ancients podcast opens our season with a talk that will take us a back to 10/11 June 323 BCE, when King Alexander III of Macedon, better known as Alexander ‘the Great’, died in Babylon aged 32. In his lifetime, he had forged one of the largest empires the world had yet seen, theoretically stretching from Greece to the Punjab, from Egypt to Samarkand. What followed his death, however, was an imperial implosion. As soon as Alexander died, the thin thread holding much of his empire together disintegrated. Tristan Hughes will tell the story of the crisis that ensued after his demise. We do hope you can join us then.
