Everywhere around us are echoes of the past. Those echoes define the boundaries of states and countries, how we pray and how we fight. They determine what money we spend and how we earn it at work, what language we speak and how we raise our children. From Wondery, host Patrick Wyman, PhD (“Fall Of Rome”) helps us understand our world and how it got to be the way it is.

    The Austronesian Expansion, Part 2

    The Austronesian Expansion, Part 2

    The first wave of migration out of Taiwan brought speakers of Austronesian to the northern reaches of the Philippines, the homeland of the Malayo-Polynesians. From there, they spread out over a vast swathe of Southeast Asia and Oceania, eventually moving to the distant reaches of Indonesia and the previously uninhabited spaces of Remote Oceania.

    Human Sacrifice, Oracle Bones, and Shang China: Interview with Professor Rod Campbell

    Human Sacrifice, Oracle Bones, and Shang China: Interview with Professor Rod Campbell

    China's Shang Dynasty is something of an enigma. It produced the earliest written evidence in China, in the form of inscribed oracle bones, and decades of archaeology have shed light on its capital city and society. Yet much about it is still unclear, including precisely how the Shang understood themselves and their world. Professor Rod Campbell is one of the world's leading experts on the Shang, and his work has done a great deal to illuminate the Shang worldview and why they did the things they did, including human sacrifice on an enormous scale.

Wonderful show, really great!

I have always enjoyed history shows and documentaries, and I have listened to some podcasts, but this one is the best: very well documented and written, very up to date, the interviews are also great, and I am learning a lot! I want to thank Patrick and congratulate him for the show. Hope it continues for a long time!
