Audiobook: Tacitus on Germany

Tacitus, that renowned historian of Rome, wrote Germania, or De origine et situ Germanorum, over nineteen hundred years ago, and Thomas Gordon translated it more than a hundred years ago, putting the text, as prepared by Project Gutenberg, in the public domain, free to be enjoyed by any and all of us. Here I have recorded myself reading it, so that you might benefit from such a penetrating account of the ancient Germanic peoples as Tacitus provides, even in the absence of reading time of your own.

Here is the audio, free for download at the Internet Archive:

And here is the text from which I read. I hope you enjoy listening to it at least as much as I did reading it.
