Virtual Class: Eric H. Cline at 92Y1177 BC


For more than three hundred years during the Late Bronze Age, the Mediterranean region played host to a complex international world in which Egyptians, Mycenaeans, Minoans, Hittites, Assyrians, Babylonians, Cypriots, and Canaanites all interacted. This cosmopolitan and globalized world-system may have catalyzed the apocalyptic disaster that ended the Bronze Age.

This two-part illustrated lecture series by Professor Eric H. Cline of The George Washington University will explore the international world of the Late Bronze Age in detail and consider the actual Collapse and the possible reasons for why it happened, including whether it might hold some cautionary warnings for us today.
