Event Details


Acclaimed historian Peter Frankopan, bestselling author of The Silk Roads and the ground-breaking The Earth Transformed: An Untold History, joins Janina Ramirez to explore how a changing climate has dramatically shaped the development – and demise – of civilisations across time.

Ranging from savage storms and devastating droughts to how growing demands for harvests resulted in the increase of slavery, they discuss how the natural environment is a crucial, if not the defining, factor in global history. They ask: what lessons can it teach us as we face a future of rapid global warming?

Humanity has transformed the earth: Peter Frankopan transforms our understanding of history.
