Prof. Sir Barry Cunliffe: Approaching Eurasia—The Dynamics of Connectivity

RLAHA hosted a fascinating talk by Barry Cunliffe yesterday evening, he introduced the talk by considering how archaeology looks at everything from the tiniest details through to global patterns across millennia. Then considered how humanity’s acquisitive nature drives the urge to migrate and connect and suggested  that first time man road a horse was far more important than our first step on the moon. He revealed that the grain and climate zones of the Eurasian plate facilitates east west migration, with small changes in climate having big effects on human behavior.

Afterwards, Wiley and the journal Archaeometry hosted a lovely reception where lively discussion ensued.
