Curse Of The Ancients
Available on History Play
Professor Alice Roberts reveals how scientists are unearthing the evidence for cataclysmic events in the past and their disastrous consequences. From wars to earthquakes and floods to famines, these are the events that have helped shape our modern world. Journey across Europe and North Africa to discover fabulous cities abandoned, battlefields long forgotten and sophisticated civilisations lost to the mists of time. Suffering these catastrophic events, our ancient ancestors must have felt they were cursed, but science is now exploding those myths and re-writing history.
