In this episode that the superb scholar and expert Dr. Eric Cline discusses his book 1177 BC and Plague within the Bronze Age Collapse.

In this episode we discuss how plague should have played a role in the collapse of the Bronze Age Mediterranean but that we are currently struggling to find physical evidence.

For clarification we do discuss plague within the LBAC and so we don't discuss the ancient texts that do discuss plague outside of that narrow time scope, although we do briefly discuss Homer discussing plague during the Trojan War and though the Trojan War takes place within this period, the story itself was written long after the collapse.
