    The Foundations of Western Civilization: The Eastern Mediterranean in the 4th & 3rd Millennia BCE Lecture 1 Introduction - Ben Churcher

    In 2011 NEAF launched a series of Saturday lectures that were aimed at giving an overview of the development of Western Civilization from the 4th millennium BCE through to the 2nd millennium ACE. These series proved extremely popular and there were many requests for them to be repeated. We have decided to re-run these lectures for both members and for the wider public.
    The first of this series will consist of four lectures concentrating on the 4th and 3rd millennia BCE in the eastern Mediterranean.
