The Collapse of the Bronze Age

Lecture no. 9 from the course: Origins of Great Ancient Civilizations

 The Collapse of the Bronze Age

Taught by Professor Kenneth W. Harl | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

The great empires of the late Bronze Age fall in the wake of migrations and barbarian invasions usually associated with the advent of iron technology. Though this has been explained as the result of natural disasters, the imperial order did not collapse so much as fragment.
