This is Greece

About the Show

Join historian Michael Scott as he unfolds the history of northern Greece from ancient times to the present, through the monuments, streets, coffee shops and people of Thessaloniki: from the archaeological museum which shows us how the town got its name (there was a Macedonian princess called Thessaloniki); to the sturdy structures built by the Roman emperors; and to the place where the gates of the city look on to the ancient commercial super-highway heading east to Istanbul, the Via Egnatia.
