Hi Charles,

Came across your blog today. Given your interest in using digital and social media to promote awareness of classics you may be interested in Marathon2500 a series of online lectures discussing the 2500th anniversary of the battle of Marathon. We have a facebook page here:
A website where the lectures can be accessed:

We've got a lecture on the 10th of November on the lives of Greek and Persian soldiers to be given by Victor Davis Hanson.

Please drop by our facebook page, and if you have any content relevant to the theme let me know through blogger - would be great to hear your thoughts on how we can raise awareness of the lectures...
