I, like you, was a rabid fan of The History of Rome from the beginning and feel like I have lost a friend since it has ended. I am very much enjoying this podcast and know it will only continue to get better moving forward as it has in the few episodes so far. Thank you for helping fill the void left with the end of The History of Rome!

In this podcast we finish off the Stone Age and discuss the Rise of the Indo-Europeans. The Indo-Europeans are the language family tree of which most European and some Asian languages come from. They seem to have either come into Europe or evolved into the Indo-Europeans right at the end of the Neolithic, beginning of the Chalcolithic and Bronze Age, depending on which theory you hold. In this episode we discuss some of the best and worst theories for Indo-European origins.

Rank #5: Episode 3 Mesolithic Europe

Podcast cover
Read more
Today we talk about the murky and difficult to define Mesolithic period in European history. We cover how the Paleolithic cultures became Mesolithic ones in adapting to the new weather patterns brought on by the end of the Pleistocene and the emergence of the Holocene. We cover the Mesolithic rather quickly so that we can get to the Neolithic when things really start to get cooking.
