The History News Show will pause for a few months, until I finish my Master’s degree in History. I will be back at the end of Summer 2017.
This episode, we start with some follow up about Goebbels’ secretary and about Otzi the Iceman. Then we hear about a pan-European police operation that targeted antiquities traffickers, we reconsider the origins of Western civilisation, and we also reconsider the time of the death of the Mayan civilisation.
Also: some pictures of two famous Celtic archaeological finds, a controversy about Germany’s colonial past in Africa, a new book about an Ancient Arthurian Kingdom, we touch on Poland’s World War II controversy and finally, it’s Black History Month in February!
