Gunnar Heinsohn and Trevor Palmer are currently locked into a debate that mainly centres around the conventional version of Roman history. Palmer is on the mainstream side, producing reams of evidence in support of his position, and Heinsohn, as is his want, is lobbing the occasional hand grenade to cause a splutter or two. Now, Heinsohn's ideas have been taken up by the redoubtable Tim Cullen and he has his own variation on it all – – go to http://malagabay.wordpress.com/2014/08/16/friends-romans-countrymen/ … and http://malagabay.wordpress.com/2014/08/18/a-not-so-funny-thing-happened/ and http://malagabay.wordpress.com/2014/05/01/history-stretching-the-truth/
Tim Cullen has been to Alfred de Grazia's web site at www.q-mag.org which has provided a venue for both Heinsohn and Palmer. It's an interesting subject – trawl down both sites for a bit of fun.
