We live in a global and connected world. But that is not how we study history. Instead, we look at events situated in a particular time and place, isolated from their global contexts, leaving us with a disconnected sense of our past. In this talk, Michael will be seeking to throw off the disciplinary boundaries that have shackled the study of history, and take the audience on a journey to connect up different strands of our human story across the ancient world.
