Noted historian and archaeologist Eric Cline discusses the themes of his Pulitzer Prize-nominated book "1177 BC: The Year Civilization Collapsed" and takes a closer look at why Mediterranean societies of the Late Bronze Age-with their complex cosmopolitan and globalized world-systems-came to a dramatic halt. He considers the similarities and parallels of our contemporary civilization, making the chain of interconnected events more than simply a study of ancient history.
