Legacy: A Search for the Origins of Civilization

Today on Far Future Horizons we present Legacy:  A Search for the Origins of Civilization.

Here is another great documentary produced in the year 1991 concerning the origin of civilization and hosted by the renowned historian Michael Wood.

Host Michael Wood traces the rise of both Asian and Western civilization in one global perspective in these thought-provoking videos. From the crumbling ruins in the Iraqi desert to those of Greece and Rome, viewers contemplate thriving cities and complex societies that have vanished, a reminder that other nations prospered for thousands of years. Now all that remains is their legacy.

After thousands of years as a hunter/gatherer, man built the first cities 5,000 years ago on the banks of the Euphrates River. Civilization as we know it began with the glorious cultures of Ur, Nineveh, and Babylon.

Legacy: A Search for the Origins of Civilization hosted by Michael Wood and its companion book are both available from Amazon Books. 

Another book we would like to suggest is by Michael Wood is In Search of the First Civilizations

Iraq: The Cradle of Civilization
