Piracy and the Bronze Age Collapse01:27:09
Piracy and the Bronze Age Collapse
3 years ago

In this episode titled "Piracy in the Bronze Age Collapse" we are joined by none other than Dr. Louise Hitchcock and Dr. Aren Maeir! Together they guide us into an obscure but important aspect of not just the Late Bronze Age but of the Bronze Age Collapse itself and that is the subject of piracy. Are the Sea Peoples merely pirates or is it more complicated? What does archaeology tell us about piracy in the Late Bronze Age? Were there pirate kings and pirate kingdoms? Do we have primary sources on piracy in the Late Bronze Age? Can the Iliad and the Odyssey be taken as a historical source and do these works reflect Bronze Age piracy? Why were the Sea Peoples easily defeated in open battle? These are just a few of the subjects that we attack in this fun episode on the Sea Peoples, Piracy and the Bronze Age Collapse.

Grisly discovery of sacrificed Women and Children revealed in Aztec Skull Tower!
4 years ago

In our segment of history today I go over the latest gruesome archaeological discover of women and children sacrificed and used to build a tower of skulls in the Aztec Empire. Guardian description: Archaeologists have unearthed new sections of an Aztec tower of human skulls dating back to the 1400s beneath the center of Mexico City. The team has uncovered the facade and eastern side of the tower, as well as 119 human skulls of men, women and children, adding to hundreds previously found, the National Institute of Anthropology and History (Inah) announced on Friday. The tower, approximately five meters (16.4ft) in diameter, was first discovered in 2017, and the latest discoveries were made in March. It is believed to be part of the Huey Tzompantli, a huge array of skulls that struck fear into the Spanish conquistadores when they captured the city under Hernán Cortés in 1521.

The History of the Minoans and the Bronze Age Collapse55:09
The History of the Minoans and the Bronze Age Collapse
4 years ago

In this presentation Dr. Louise Hitchcock guides us through every aspect of Minoan History from the earliest populations and migrations into Crete to the hybridization of cultures and peoples that would come to define the peoples that we call the Minoans. Follow us as we explore the rise and fall of one of the greatest civilizations in history as we explore origins, art, architecture, religion, society, gender, hierarchy, primary sources, archaeology, historiography and violence. Lastly we approach their fall... and we ask ourselves where did they go? What happened? And who replaced them? An overview taken from Wikipedia: The Minoan civilization was a Bronze Age Aegean civilization on the island of Crete and other Aegean Islands, flourishing from c. 3000 BC to c. 1450 BC until a late period of decline, finally ending around 1100 BC. It represents the first advanced civilization in Europe, leaving behind massive building complexes, tools, artwork, writing systems, and a massive network of trade. The civilization was rediscovered at the beginning of the 20th century through the work of British archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans. The name "Minoan" derives from the mythical King Minos and was coined by Evans, who identified the site at Knossos with the labyrinth and the Minotaur. The Minoan civilization has been described as the earliest of its kind in Europe, and historian Will Durant called the Minoans "the first link in the European chain".

Which Civilization Came First?

In this episode Dr. Miano guides us through a heated topic that continues to rage on social media and that is which civilization came first? Was it the Mesopotamian Civilization? Egyptian Civilization? Or the Indus Civilization? First he asks "What is Civilization? How do we determine a civilization? And then goes on to explain what academia generally defines as civilization. Once we leave that aspect of the presentation he then discusses all three of these civilizations and explains which one came first and why?

The Origins of the Israelites16:17
The Origins of the Israelites
4 years ago

In the first episode of our series on Ancient Israel and also Judah we are joined by Dr. Aren Maeir who guides us into the controversial and heavily debated origin or origins of the Ancient Israelites. He discusses the scholarship on the subject such as: Did the Israelites develop out of the Canaanite populations? Did they migrate in over time? If so, then from where? Or is the answer both? Did natives and migrants eventually come together to form a distinctly different group? We also talk archaeology, ancient DNA, dietary laws, primary sources for the earliest evidence of the Israelites outside of the Bible and so very much more. We also discuss thought provoking topics such as: Is the term Israel derived from a pagan Canaanite deity? How should we view the Old Testament when studying history? Can we use both the term Israelite and Hebrew interchangeably? But as we leave off Dr. Maeir reminds us to be cautious of how we use results from ancient DNA studies while reminding us how often the results get misconstrued.

Enuma Elish  | The Babylonian Epic of Creation | Complete Audiobook | With Commentary01:17:41
Enuma Elish | The Babylonian Epic of Creation | Complete Audiobook | With Commentary
4 years ago

This is the complete audiobook of the Enuma Elish : The Babylonian Epic of Creation that also comes with commentary. I hope that you all enjoy this awesome work that helps us better understand ancient Mesopotamian Mythology, Religion and Civilization. The Enuma Elish (also known as The Seven Tablets of Creation) is the Mesopotamian creation myth whose title is derived from the opening lines of the piece, "When on High". All of the tablets containing the myth, found at Ashur, Kish, Ashurbanipal's library at Nineveh, Sultantepe, and other excavated sites, date to c. 1200 BCE but their colophons indicate that these are all copies of a much older version of the myth dating from long before the fall of Sumer in c. 1750 BCE. As Marduk, the champion of the young gods in their war against Tiamat, is of Babylonian origin, the Sumerian Ea/Enki or Enlil is thought to have played the major role in the original version of the story. The copy found at Ashur has the god Ashur in the main role as was the custom of the cities of Mesopotamia. The god of each city was always considered the best and most powerful. Marduk, the god of Babylon, only figures as prominently as he does in the story because most of the copies found are from Babylonian scribes. Even so, Ea does still play an important part in the Babylonian version of the Enuma Elish by creating human beings.

Early Dynastic Mesopotamia ~ Sumerian / Akkadian Empires07:34
Early Dynastic Mesopotamia ~ Sumerian / Akkadian Empires
4 years ago

The Early Dynastic Period of Mesopotamia is the modern-day archaeological term for the era in Mesopotamian history – 2900-2334 BCE – during which some of the most significant cultural advances were made including the rise of the cities, the development of writing, and the establishment of governments. This era was preceded by the Uruk Period (4100-2900 BCE) when the first cities were established in the region of Sumer (southern Mesopotamia) and succeeded by the Akkadian Period (2334-2218 BCE) when Mesopotamia was conquered by Sargon of Akkad (r. 2334-2279 BCE) and ruled by him and his successors as the Akkadian Empire.

In this video Dr. Eric Cline talks about new developments in the study of the Bronze Age Collapse going back the past five years and especially from the scientific perspective. What new approaches are scientists taking to better understand the Late Bronze Age? What do these studies tell us? From exploring DNA tests that in many ways confirm what the experts already knew, to discovering a horrific mega drought we watch as Dr. Cline makes the Late Bronze Age Collapse even more fascinating.

The History of an Elamite City (SUSA)24:09
The History of an Elamite City (SUSA)
4 years ago

Susa was one of the oldest cities in the world and part of the site is still inhabited as Shush, Khuzestan Province, Iran. Excavations have uncovered evidence of continual habitation dating back to 4395 BCE but that early community grew from an even older one dating back to c. 7000 BCE. Susa was a principal city of the Elamite, Achaemenid Persian, and Parthian empires and was originally known to the Elamites as 'Susan’ or 'Susun’. The Greek name for the city was Sousa and the Hebrew, Shushan. It is mentioned in the Bible in the books of Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah, and most notably the Book of Esther and was said to be the home of both Nehemiah and Daniel. It is important to note that these locations were not only mentioned in biblical texts but also in other religious texts as well. Although Shush presently occupies most of the ancient city’s location, an archaeological site of largely unexcavated tells is nearby. The temple/palace area and graves were excavated in the 19th and 20th centuries CE but further excavation is required. According to UNESCO, “the excavated architectural monuments include administrative, residential, and palatial structures” and the site contains several layers of urban settlement dating from the 5th millennium BCE through the 13th century CE. The old city was situated between the modern rivers Karkheh and Dez (the rivers Choaspes and Eulaeus mentioned in the Biblical Book of Daniel 8:2, where Daniel received his vision), which bring mud down from the Zagros Mountains making the area one of the most fertile in the region. It was the political center of Elam early in the 4th millennium BCE and there is a fortress, still extant, which dates back to this period as well as the ruins of buildings from the Persian, Macedonian, Syrian-Greek, and Parthian eras, making the Susa site of particular historical importance as it provides significant evidence of the evolution of cultures in the region over a vast period of time. It was accorded status as a site of Outstanding Universal Value by UNESCO in 2015 CE.

The Kingdom of Commagene25:57
The Kingdom of Commagene
4 years ago

The Kingdom of Commagene (163 BCE - 72 CE) was a Hellenistic political entity, heavily influenced by Armenian and ancient Persian culture and traditions, established in southwestern Anatolia (modern-day Turkey) by Ptolemaeus of Commagene (r. 163-130 BCE) of the Orontid Dynasty who had formerly been satrap (governor) of the region under the Seleucid Empire (312-63 BCE). The Seleucid Empire had been in steady decline since it came into conflict with Rome in 190 BCE and, by 163 BCE, no longer had the strength to maintain its earlier cohesion. Ptolemaeus seized on the weakness, declared Commagene an independent state, and became its first king. The name derives from Kummuh, a Neo-Hittite kingdom of the Iron Age located in the same area, and Commagene would retain indigenous Luwian and Hittite traditions and motifs in its architecture. The region had been part of Urartu, the proto-Armenian kingdom, under the name Sophene, which became part of the Achaemenid Empire (c. 550-330 BCE). The Achaemenid Empire fell to Alexander the Great in 330 BCE and, after Alexander’s death, the region became part of the Seleucid Empire at which point Sophene became its own kingdom.

The Origins of the Sumerians (DNA)18:57
The Origins of the Sumerians (DNA)
4 years ago

In this episode we bring you the origins of the Sumerians. We know who they are and what they achieved but what do we know about where they came from and who they actually were? For millennia, the southern part of the Mesopotamia has been a wetland region generated by the Tigris and Euphrates rivers before flowing into the Gulf. This area has been occupied by human communities since ancient times and the present-day inhabitants, the Marsh Arabs, are considered the population with the strongest link to ancient Sumerians. Popular tradition, however, considers the Marsh Arabs as a foreign group, of unknown origin, which arrived in the marshlands when the rearing of water buffalo was introduced to the region. And so we explore DNA studies, history, modern Iraqis, the Marsh Arabs and so very much more to track the genetic footprints of the Sumerians. Original Article: In search of the genetic footprints of Sumerians: a survey of Y-chromosome and mtDNA variation in the Marsh Arabs of Iraq. https://bmcevolbiol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-2148-11-288 Check out the awesome work of our narrator and contributor DW Draffin!

The Kingdom of Alashiya and the Bronze Age Collapse30:48
The Kingdom of Alashiya and the Bronze Age Collapse
4 years ago

Alashiya, also spelled Alasiya, also known as the Kingdom of Alashiya, was a state which existed in the Middle and Late Bronze Ages, and was situated somewhere in the Eastern Mediterranean. It was a major source of goods, especially copper, for ancient Egypt and other states in the Ancient Near East. It is referred to in a number of the surviving texts and is now thought to be the ancient name of Cyprus, or an area of Cyprus. This was confirmed by the scientific analysis performed in the Tel Aviv University of the clay tablets which were sent from Alashiya to other rulers.

The Bronze Age Collapse in the Bible
4 years ago

In this episode Seth Fleishman from the YouTube Channel "World History By A Jew," takes us into a subject I have really looked forward to and that is the Bronze Age Collapse in the Bible. In this lecture he explores the Old Testament and shows us the Bronze Age Collapse throughout the Hebrew Bible, while also exploring the world outside of it as well such as explaining what was happening in Egypt, Greece, Anatolia and Canaan, while also discussing many of the sites that were destroyed by the Sea Peoples themselves. But, we also see those of the Sea Peoples who arrive to ancient Canaan and who also decide to stay such as the Philistines. But also he discusses a controversial subject and that is, is one of the Israelite Tribes a part of the Sea Peoples groups?

Philistine Society in Ancient Canaan07:06
Philistine Society in Ancient Canaan
4 years ago

In this episode Dr. Maeir guides us through Philistine Society and what little bit of information that we know about them. Was it a hierarchical society? Is their societal structure due to their relationship to Greece? Are there problems with this hypothesis? What was the relationship between Philistine cities? Were they separate or united? Was Inter-Philistine Competition? Were the Philistines truly a militaristic society? It also deals with the lack of textual evidence and also brings up the problematic portrayals of the Philistines in ancient Israelite texts like the Bible. The Philistines were an ancient people who lived on the south coast of Canaan from the 12th century BC until 604 BC, when they were exiled to Mesopotamia by King Nebuchadnezzar II. They are known for their biblical conflict with the Israelite's. Though the primary source of information about the Philistines is the Hebrew Bible, they are first attested to in reliefs at the Temple of Ramses III at Medinet Habu, in which they are called Peleset (accepted as cognate with Hebrew Peleshet); the parallel Assyrian term is Palastu, Pilišti, or Pilistu.

The Elamite Empire29:32
The Elamite Empire
4 years ago

Elam was a region in the Near East corresponding to the modern-day provinces of Ilam and Khuzestan in southern Iran (though it also included part of modern-day southern Iraq) whose civilization spanned thousands of years from c. 3200 - c. 539 BCE. The name comes from the Akkadian and Sumerian words for “highlands” or “high country” while the Elamites referred to their land as Haltami (or Haltamti) which seems to have had the same meaning. In this episode we follow the rise and fall of one of the earliest and greatest civilizations and cultures in human history. From their participation in the earliest war in human history to their isolated language and unique art forms, Elam and its people carved out a unique place for themselves in history. From religious tolerance to military expansion the Elamite Empire expanded and forever changed ancient Mesopotamia until it came to clash with the Assyrian Empire and would eventually be conquered, assimilated, independent again and then assimilated again by the great Persian Empire.

Egypt and the Bronze Age Collapse54:28
Egypt and the Bronze Age Collapse
4 years ago

In this episode we dive into the Bronze Age collapse from the Egyptian perception. We start off by briefly giving a summary of the Bronze Age collapse for those who may not be familiar with the subject. We will explore three invasions of the Sea Peoples and the Pharaohs who reigned during these periods. We will also discuss the different groups of the Sea Peoples who invaded and the battles that took place. Though ancient Egypt was one of the few empires to survive the collapse, it never recovered its former height. What impacts did the collapse have on Egypt? Don't worry, we have you covered! "My sword is great and mighty like that of Montu. No land can stand fast before my arms. I am a king rejoicing in slaughter. My reign is calmed in peace." With this claim, Ramses III implicated that his reign is safe in the wake of fallout from the Bronze Age. This episode is going to lead to the next upcoming episode which will be the Bronze Age Collapse in the Bible.

Dogs in Ancient Mesopotamia07:24
Dogs in Ancient Mesopotamia
4 years ago

Dogs have been a part of the history of human beings since before the written word. The ancient temple of Gobekli-Tepe in Turkey, dated to at least 12,000 years BCE, has provided archaeologists with evidence of domesticated dogs in the Middle East corresponding to the earliest evidence of domestication, the Natufian Grave, (c. 12,000 BCE) discovered in Ein Mallaha, Israel, in which an old man was buried with a puppy. In southern France, footprints of a young child walking beside a canine have been preserved in the earth of the Chauvet Cave, dating to 26,000 years ago and a 2008 CE study concluded that dogs were domesticated in Europe between 32,000-18,800 years ago with the oldest dog remains in the world found thus far dated to 31,700 years ago (Viegas, 1). This Paleolithic dog most resembled a Siberian Husky (Viegas, 1). The findings of the 2008 study are challenged by dog remains found in the Goyet Caves of Belgium which date to 36,500 years ago. However old the first dog was, or how they came to be domesticated, they became friends to humans quite early in history and have remained so. In many cultures throughout the ancient world, dogs figured prominently and, largely, were regarded in much the same way that they are today. Dogs were seen as faithful companions, hunters, guardians, spirit-guides, and as a treasured part of the family. In the oldest story from the Near East, The Epic of Gilgamesh from ancient Mesopotamia (dated to 2150-1400 BCE), dogs appear in an elevated role as the companions of one of the most popular goddesses of the region; the goddess Innana (Ishtar) travels with seven prized hunting dogs in collar and leash. Although Egypt is credited with the invention of the dog collar, it most likely developed in Sumer. It can be assumed the development of the dog collar was suggested shortly after dogs were domesticated which happened in Mesopotamia prior to Egypt. A golden pendant of a dog (clearly a Suluki) was found at the Sumerian city of Uruk dated to 3300 BCE and a cylinder seal from Nineveh (dated c. 3000 BCE) also features a Saluki. The dog pendant wears a wide collar; evidence of the dog collar in use at that time. In the famous Descent of Innana (a story considered older than and not a part of Gilgamesh) in which the goddess goes down into the underworld, her husband, Dumuzi, keeps domesticated dogs as part of his royal retinue. Dogs featured prominently in the everyday life of the Mesopotamians.

Ancient Egypt's New Chronology by Egyptologist Dr. Rohl36:28
Ancient Egypt's New Chronology by Egyptologist Dr. Rohl
4 years ago

New Chronology is an alternative chronology of the ancient Near East developed by English Egyptologist David Rohl and other researchers beginning with A Test of Time: The Bible - from Myth to History in 1995. It contradicts mainstream Egyptology by proposing a major revision of the established Egyptian chronology, in particular by re-dating Egyptian kings of the Nineteenth through Twenty-fifth Dynasties, bringing forward conventional dating by up to 350 years. David Rohl's published works A Test of Time (1995), Legend (1998), The Lost Testament (2002), and The Lords of Avaris (2007) set forth Rohl's theories for re-dating the major civilizations of the ancient world. A Test of Time proposes a down-dating (bringing closer to the present), by several centuries, of the New Kingdom of Egypt, thus needing a major revision of the conventional chronology of ancient Egypt. Rohl asserts that this would let scholars identify some of the major events in the Hebrew Bible with events in the archaeological record and identify some of the well-known biblical characters with historical figures who appear in contemporary ancient texts. Lowering the Egyptian dates also dramatically affects the dating of dependent chronologies, such as that currently used for the Greek Heroic Age of the Late Bronze Age, removing the Greek Dark Ages, and lowering the dates of the Trojan War to within two generations of a ninth-century-BC Homer and his most famous composition: the Iliad. The New Chronology, one of several proposed radical revisions of the conventional chronology, has not been accepted in academic Egyptology, where the conventional chronology or small variations of it remains standard.
