This session is perfect for anyone interested in strange or unusual aspects of history, or just history in general.  The tidbits discussed here are mostly sedate compared to some of the tawdry tales we've probably heard about the ancient Greeks, but some content may be better suited for older students.  However, mature students of younger age are welcome with parent/guardian approval.
