How Our Biology Shaped World History
Professor Lewis Dartnell captivates with his brilliant blend of science and big history, looking at how our bodies – in all their miracles and flaws – helped forge world history.
From the Black Death ending feudalism to haemophilia undermining royal families across Europe and scurvy inadvertently giving rise to the Mafia, we are the sum of our frailties and faculties. Our biology has shaped our relationships, societies, economies and wars. This event reframes human history and the way we see the world.
