Good work Tero. You can do "The Bronze Age Collapse: how civilisations end" next time eh?

Thanks. I am giving a short class in March still. More chance to experience how these seniors want to view history. Since it's in Europe there is likely some class member that has done geneology of their family and has to stop me for some amusing fact.

I have 3 books by this American who did get to Africa for part of his education. It is pretty much the era after 1600 and colonialism that he covers.
