    #129: Neil Oliver - Wisdom Of The Ancients: Life Lessons From Our Distant Past

    Neil Oliver is a Scottish archaeologist, historian, broadcaster and writer who is the author of the new book, "Wisdom Of The Ancients: Life Lessons From Our Distant Past."

    In this episode, Neil Oliver takes us back in time, to grab hold of the ideas buried in forgotten cultures and early civilizations. From Laetoli footprints in Tanzania to Keralan rituals, stone circles and cave paintings, Neil takes us on a global journey through antiquity. A master storyteller, drawing on immense knowledge of our ancient past, he distils this wisdom into messages that have endured the test of time, and invites us to consider how these might apply to our lives today. The result is powerful and inspirational, moving and profound.

Genuinely insightful

I’ve listened to many of the Freedom Pact podcasts having come across it a few months ago during lockdown. I’ve just finished the Dr Tal Ben Shahar episode on happiness which was fascinating, helpful and entertaining - there were a few raised eyebrow ‘wow’ moments in that episode. On the whole great content, I enjoy the interviewing style and the guests on are great.
