Alien vs. Historian - Guest Ancient History with Angela

This time, we have a guest, Angela, from the "Ancient History with Angela" channel on TikTok and Instagram, who will discuss a few clips about classical Greece and Rome with us. We will learn that we can all be fooled when several emperors share the same name and that Ancient Alien proponents will use this to their advantage. We will also discuss source criticism, how historians approach a subject, and Alexander the Great's battle with a UFO. So stay tuned for an exciting conversation.

In Digging up Ancient Aliens, our host Fredrik uses his background in archaeology to discover what is genuine, fake, and somewhere in between in popular media, such as Ancient Aliens, Ancient Apocalypse, and many other places.

You can follow Angela on her TikTok channel

or over at Instagram.
