Welcome to episode five of the series NAUE II SWORDS, GERMS, & IRON brought to us by none other than Dr. Louise Hitchcock and this episode is going to be about Climate Change and the Bronze Age collapse.

In this brief presentation we discuss the Trade Networks and Economic downfall of the Bronze Age Collapse.

At first we backtrack and talk about how large and expansive indirect and direct trade in the Late Bronze Age World.

How far were people traveling? What kind of items were being traded?

And finally we talk modern parallels and similarities to the Bronze Age Collapse and the Great Depression.
