Peter Frankopan, author of the bestselling The Silk Roads, joins us to talk about how a changing climate has dramatically shaped the development – and demise – of civilisations across time. Most people can name the famous leaders and major battles of the past. Few can name the most destructive storms, the worst winters or the most devastating droughts. In his groundbreaking new book, he shows that engagement with the natural world and climactic change are not new. He traces how growing demands for harvests resulted in the increase in slavery, explains the long history of trying to understand and manipulate the weather and explores humankind’s continuing efforts to make sense of the natural world.
