1422-1423 (Again) Eric Cline – 1177 BC, the Year that Civilization Collapsed
Eric Cline was in town for a standing-room-only lecture on his best selling book, about which I interviewed him early in 2014. So we’re replaying the two-part interview.
I had a chance to meet Eric in person, thank him for all his great interviews, and talk about another interview in the near future.
In and around 1177 BC Eric describes a perfect storm of events that caused the collapse of the Late Bronze Age, a globalized age must like the world we live in today. And therein, perhaps, a warning to us from 3200 years ago. In addition, the collapse of the Late Bronze Age created the world in which the kingdom of Israel took root, and which gave us the narrative that we read about in the Bible.
