Drought, famine, established powers on the edge of collapse, mass migrations from failed states to other countries: you may be thinking of the Middle East in 2022. Try 1180 BCE!
In this richly illustrated course, you’ll travel back to discover a world enduring unprecedented change, from the struggling empires of Egypt, the Mycenean Greeks, and the Hittites of Turkey to an embryonic group of tribes on their way to becoming Biblical Israel and Classical Greece. While an era of seemingly endless chaos, 1180 BCE marks the birth moment of cultural features that thrive to this day.
