From the far western outreaches of the Eurasian continent, Europe became one of the great powerhouse regions in the world. In this workshop, we will explore some of the background to this development. What roles did migrations and trade play in developing powerful parts of Europe? How did factors such as ecology and resources shape different European cultures? Starting from 9000 BC and the beginnings of agriculture to the time of the Vikings in 1000 AD, members will research and present on their selected chapter from the book Europe Between the Oceans by Barry Cunliffe.
