This history documentary asks the question: Did Ancient Soldiers Get PTSD? To answer this we first begin with the modern definition of PTSD and examine the history of its development within the medical community. We then take a look at ancient warfare to discuss examples of soldiers and civilians who appear to display symptoms of PTSD. These include passages from the history of assyria, the history of ancient greece, the history of ancient rome and the medieval era. Specific examples are drawn from famous events like the Battle of Marathon or the Second Punic War. We then finally conclude by seeing what conclusions we can draw from these examples.
