Sir Barry Cunliffe on steppe nomads of Eurasia

Friday 27 October 2017, 18.30-19.30
BP Lecture Theatre
£5, Members/concessions £3

Historian and archaeologist Professor Sir Barry Cunliffe examines the dramatic human story of the earliest domestication of wild horses on the Eurasian steppe.

Following his acclaimed book of 2016 By steppe, desert and ocean: the birth of Eurasia and in advance of his latest publication on the Scythians, this lecture examines the earliest domestication of horses by pastoralist nomads on the steppe, and the sudden emergence of predatory warrior hordes in the early centuries of the first millennium BC.
