Research Ramblings: The Spartan Citizenry, Part 14

As noted in my May 2, 2014 post, Spartan warriors were an interesting bunch, and I’m continuing my series on them with today’s fact:

Spartan males went about after nightfall without torches.

Men and boys alike would travel in the dark without light. This practice was to train them to move stealthily at night.

Tune in next week for more about the Spartans!
