Welcome to the fifth episode of The Josh Marshall Show! This week Josh chats with Eric Cline, an ancient historian, archaeologist and professor at George Washington University. Cline is the author of the book 1177 B.C.: THE YEAR CIVILIZATION COLLAPSED, which explores how the civilized world of the Bronze Age came to an abrupt and cataclysmic end. Josh and Eric discuss this period, and also what it's like to be an archaeologist in 2016. To listen to the full podcast, sign up for Prime for free access or download the episodes for $1 on Podbean.
