It will dive into the Bronze Age and discuss was revolt a contributing factor in decline of the Bronze Age and the birth of the Iron Age?

Dr. Hitchcock will take us briefly through the theories surrounding peasant revolts as a factor in the Bronze Age Collapse.

Did earthquakes and and other events cause widespread panic and even violent resistance to the elites in places like Mycenaean Greece? Did peasants join the Sea Peoples? What are your thoughts?
