John presents Mesopotamia, and the early civilizations that arose around the Fertile Crescent. Topics covered include the birth of territorial kingdoms, empires, Neo-Assyrian torture tactics, sacred marriages, ancient labor practices, the world’s first law code, and the great failed romance of John’s undergrad years. Three reasons you should like this episode; one who doesn’t like leaning about how Neo-Assyrians would find would be rebels and chop their limbs off? Two John reminds of the true meaning of awesome (inspiring an overwhelming feeling of reverence, admiration, or fear; causing or inducing awe: an awesome sight). Three like the rest of us John has a strange fascination with mummies.
