The Revolutions of Civilization

Gelesen von Leon Harvey

(3,833 Sterne; 3 Bewertungen)

British archaeologist & Egyptologist, Flinders Petrie, discusses the history of civilization in Egypt, Greece, Rome & medieval Europe & correlates contemporary events in different countries. A measure of the quality of civilisation is proposed by a comparison of artisan skill and effort judged in art, sculpture, and architecture between the timelines of radically different cultures. A special focus on Egypt presents evidence in a series of phases of art skill, rather than the leadership of a dynasty. (Summary by Leon Harvey) (1 hr 37 min)
