Archaeologist Professor Cyprian Broodbank takes a look at the early history of the Mediterranean. Broodbank looks at the emergence of the first humans, the origins of farming, trade and navigation, and at the rise of early civilisations such as Egyptian, Levantine, Hispanic, Minoan, Mycenaean, Phoenician, Etruscan, and early Greek. He draws on rich archaeological and other evidence from the European, Asian and African flanks of the Mediterranean and challenges old prejudices such as on Africa’s influence on Europe.

Broodbank is professor of Mediterranean archaeology at the Institute of Archaeology, University College London. His previous book, An Island Archaeology of the Early Cyclades, won the James R Wiseman Award of the Archaeological Institute of America and the Runciman Prize.
