The Age of Iron

Episode 2 of 6

Richard Miles explores the roots of civilisation. He looks at the winners and losers of the Bronze Age collapse, and the powers that emerged in the Iron Age.

Archaeologist and historian Richard Miles looks at the winners, losers and survivors of the great Bronze Age collapse, a regional catastrophe that wiped out the hard-won achievements of civilisation in the eastern Mediterranean about 3,000 years ago. In the new age of iron, civilisation would re-emerge, tempered in the flames of conflict, tougher and more resilient than ever before.
