Overview

Do you love everything about the Romans and Greeks but want to learn more about the ancient civilizations that came before them? Then this is the course for you! Meet the people who built the first cities, invented writing, and discovered how to work metal and brew beer. Then follow their political, cultural, and military development across thousands of years to arrive at the mysterious regional cataclysm known as the Bronze Age Collapse. Along the way, you’ll learn about the Sumerians, Akkadians, Babylonians, and Elamites; the Egyptians, Assyrians, Hurrians, and Hittites; as well as the Minoans and Mycenaeans of ancient Greece. You’ll even learn about the peoples who likely fought in the legendary Trojan War! This course goes beyond what's been explored in The Ancient World podcast, which has been listened to over 5 million times, to provide you with an in-depth, updated understanding of the Bronze Age civilizations of the Near East and eastern Mediterranean. Enjoy!
