Even today it is considered one of the greatest military feats ever. In 218 BC, a Carthaginian army of 90,000 men and three dozen elephants set out to cross the Alps to challenge the might of Rome. The exact route chosen by Hannibal, its charismatic commander, has been a matter of dispute ever since. Now, researchers believe they might be able to track his route. Their evidence - horse manure. They believe that Hannibal opted for the Col de la Traversette, until now regarded as the most unlikely option. In 2017 geomorphologist, William Mahaney, and microbiologist, Chris Allen, took soil samples on the Italian side, and they are hoping that the lab results will further back up their hypothesis.

Between 58 and 50 BC Julius Caesar fought a bloody campaign to absorb the whole of Gaul - modern-day France - into the Roman Empire. In his account of this period, De Bello Gallico, Caesar portrayed his actions as heroic, yet over this period he killed one million people, took another million hostage and destroyed 800 cities. In light of this, this programme examines whether his account was merely a masterpiece of propaganda that disguised the grim and brutal reality of the campaign.
