How It Began: A History of the Modern World A thrilling podcast about the History of the Modern World. Humanity has been hard at work for centuries to empower itself with better tools and insights, from science and surgery to electricity and the Internet, and this series celebrates the history of those triumphs. Compared to our ancestors, we live like superheroes and sorcerers, endowed with powers they could never have imagined. But how did we achieve all this?

Women, Gender, and Sex in the Ottoman World "Women, Gender, and Sex in the Ottoman World" is a series of podcasts that pulls together women’s history and the history of gender and sex in the Ottoman Empire and beyond. It explores the particular historical experiences of women and girls based on the conviction that returning the lives, experiences, and ideas of women to the historical record will change the way we look at historical periods and transformations at large. It also investigates the ways in which gender and sexuality can serve as useful categories of historical analysis (Scott, 1986) as they help us to better understand broad transformations in regimes of knowledge and politics, relations of property, forms of governance, and the nature of the state.

A Short History of the Buddhist Schools A Short History of the Buddhist Schools written by Joshua J. Mark and narrated by Jennifer Sabir: https://www.worldhistory.org/article/492/a-short-history-of-the-buddhist-schools/

The different Buddhist schools of thought, still operating in the present day, developed after the death of the Buddha (l. c. 563 - c. 483 BCE) in an effort to perpetuate his teachings and honor his example. Each of the schools claimed to represent Buddha's original vision and still do so in the modern era. Although Buddha himself is said to have requested that, following his death, no leader was to be chosen to lead anything like a school, this was ignored and his disciples seem to have fairly quickly institutionalized Buddhist thought with rules, regulations, and a hierarchy.

Shadow of the Temple
Shang Dynasty Shang Dynasty written by Emily Mark and narrated by Ethan Hu https://www.worldhistory.org/Shang_Dynasty/



The Shang Dynasty (c. 1600-1046 BCE) was the second dynasty of China, which succeeded the Xia Dynasty (c. 2700-1600 BCE) after the overthrow of the Xia tyrant Jie by the Shang leader, Tang. Since many historians question whether the Xia Dynasty really existed, the Shang Dynasty may have actually been the first in China and the origin of Chinese culture.

Life in a Japanese Buddhist Monastery Life in a Japanese Buddhist Monastery written by Mark Cartwright and narrated by Jennifer Sabir: https://www.worldhistory.org/article/1423/life-in-a-japanese-buddhist-monastery/

Buddhist monasteries have been part of the Japanese cultural landscape ever since the 7th century CE, and they remained both powerful and socially important institutions right through the medieval period. Today, many of Japan's finest examples of ancient and medieval architecture are located at temple complexes, a good number of which are classified as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The monks who lived, worked, and meditated in Buddhist monasteries not only served their local communities on their way to reaching enlightenment but also produced some of Japan's finest historical works of art in painting, sculpture, and calligraphy.

Druid Druid written by Mark Cartwright and narrated by Jennifer Sabir: https://www.worldhistory.org/druid/

Druids were a class of individuals in ancient Celtic cultures known for their great wisdom and knowledge of traditions. Not only priests who managed all religious rituals such as sacrifices (including humans), druids were able to give practical help by interpreting events of nature, divining the future as soothsayers, and making medicinal potions, especially using sacred plants like mistletoe.

Ancient Egyptian Symbols Ancient Egyptian Symbols written by Joshua J. Mark and narrated by Jennifer Sabir: https://www.worldhistory.org/article/1011/ancient-egyptian-symbols/



Religion in ancient Egypt was fully integrated into the people's daily lives. The gods were present at one's birth, throughout one's life, in the transition from earthly life to the eternal, and continued their care for the soul in the afterlife of the Field of Reeds. The spiritual world was ever present in the physical world and this understanding was symbolized through images in art, architecture, in amulets, statuary, and the objects used by nobility and clergy in the performance of their duties.

Medieval Knights: 12 of the Best Medieval Knights: 12 of the Best written by Mark Cartwright and narrated by Jennifer Sabir: https://www.worldhistory.org/article/1245/medieval-knights-12-of-the-best/



The knights of medieval Europe were meant to be the finest fighting men of their age, even more important, they were expected to be pure in thought and deed, as exemplified in the chivalrous code which they (usually) followed. Here are the stories of 12 such knights. The legendary figures are perhaps based on historical knights and the historical knights have all become legendary; such is the indistinct line of truth between fact and fiction and humanity's need to create larger-than-life figures of a by-gone age when valour and chivalry reached their apex.

How To Read A Maya Glyph How To Read A Maya Glyph written by Lily Ball and narrated by Jennifer Sabir: https://www.worldhistory.org/article/789/how-to-read-a-maya-glyph/

For over three centuries, the ancient Maya flourished in Mesoamerica. They built giant stone pyramids surrounded by dense jungle, used a calendrical system that made many believe that 2012 would be the end of the world, and created a writing system that is as beautiful as it is complex. Its decipherment is ongoing, even today. In fact, it is so aesthetically rich and difficult to master, one needed to be an accomplished artist in order to write it properly. Fittingly, ancient Maya scribes and artists were all known by the same title: t'zib.

Aryan Aryan written by Joshua J. Mark and narrated by DW Draffin: www.worldhistory.org/Aryan/

Aryan is a designation originally meaning “civilized”, “noble”, or “free” without reference to any ethnicity. It was first applied as a self-identifying term by a migratory group of people from Central Asia later known as Indo-Iranians (who settled on the Iranian Plateau) and, later, applied to Indo-Aryans (who traveled south to settle northern India).

This will enable us to ponder a history in which the lives of millions of men, women, and children in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia are altered forever.

Cleopatra: A Beautiful Mind She has remained the standard for beauty for more than 2,0000 years, but history's original bombshell was a lot more than a pretty face. In fact, she may have been history's most intelligent leader who outsmarted the Roman empire, twice. In this episode, we discuss the life and death of Cleopatra. In our first interlude, we witness the boat ride where Cleopatra and Ceaser join forces and join lips... Next, Mark walks us through the rise and fall of Egypt's last dynasty as we witness Cleopatra's turbulent, vibrant life and tragic end. In our What If? scenario, Cleopareta uses her political gifts to make deals, and expand Egypt's wealth and power. In our final interlude, we take a boat ride with the son of Julius Caesar and Cleopatra, Caesarion, as he springs a fiery trap on the Roman fleet. Put down your eyeliner and press play.
Hermes Hermes written by Mark Cartwright and narrated by Kelly Macquire: https://www.worldhistory.org/Hermes/



Hermes was the ancient Greek god of trade, wealth, luck, fertility, animal husbandry, sleep, language, thieves, and travel. One of the cleverest and most mischievous of the Olympian gods, he was the patron of shepherds, invented the lyre, and was, above all, the herald and messenger of Mt. Olympus so that he came to symbolise the crossing of boundaries in his role as a guide between the two realms of gods and humanity. To the Romans, the god was known as Mercury.

The Phoenician Alphabet & Language The Phoenician Alphabet & Language written by Thamis and narrated by Jennifer Sabir: https://www.worldhistory.org/article/17/the-phoenician-alphabet--language/



Phoenician is a Canaanite language closely related to Hebrew. Very little is known about the Canaanite language, except what can be gathered from the El-Amarna letters written by Canaanite kings to Pharaohs Amenhopis III (1402 - 1364 BCE) and Akhenaton (1364 - 1347 BCE). It appears that the Phoenician language, culture, and writing were strongly influenced by Egypt (which controlled Phoenicia for a long time), as king Rib-Adda of Byblos admits in one of his letters to the pharaoh.

The Man Who Killed Richard III This is a story of conspiracy and betrayal, of a lust for power and a lost allegiance; the story of the man who killed King Richard III.In this documentary we set out to prove that the Welshman Sir Rhys ap Thomas, master of Carew Castle in Pembrokeshire, killed King Richard III, changing the course of British history. Sir Rhys ap Thomas had sworn allegiance to King Richard III. He had accumulated lands and status in Wales that were dependent, in part, on his loyalty to Richard. But at the Battle of Bosworth he betrayed him, fighting on the side of Henry Tudor. He dealt the fatal blow to Richard III. We uncover what drove Rhys ap Thomas to betray not only his master but a King – and we reveal his remarkable story; from a childhood embroiled in the War of the Roses and exile to the continent, to a determined and ambitious man who brought an abrupt end to the Plantagenet line, carving the way for his own rise to power at the heart of the Tudor dynasty.The original documentary was licensed by Nent to Little Dot Studios.Podcast edit production by Ance PriednieceYou can find more from us on:https://www.youtube.com/timelinechannelhttps://www.facebook.com/timelineWHhttps://www.instagram.com/timelineWHIf you would like to get in touch with the show, email us at timeline@littledostudios.com

Women in Ancient Greece Women in Ancient Greece written by Mark Cartwright and narrated by Kelly Macquire: https://www.worldhistory.org/article/927/women-in-ancient-greece/

Women in the Ancient Greek world had few rights in comparison to male citizens. Unable to vote, own land, or inherit, a woman's place was in the home and her purpose in life was the rearing of children. That is a general description and when considering Greek women one should remember our sources are incomplete and not always unbiased.

Inventions that Caused the Industrial Revolution Gail and Oliver go over some of the inventions that helped start the Industrial Revolution. What were some aspects of life irrevocably changed due to inventions and how were people able to change their lives? Was everyone able to profit from these inventions and how did life change?

Edinburgh Castle Edinburgh Castle written by Mark Cartwright and narrated by Jennifer Sabir: https://www.worldhistory.org/Edinburgh_Castle/



Edinburgh Castle, towering atop Castle Rock, has served Scotland for centuries, at one time or another acting as a fortress, royal residence, seat of government, armoury, and prison. The scene of countless sieges, royal births and deaths, murderous intrigues, and military displays, Edinburgh castle has long been a symbol of Scottish history and national pride. Today, the castle is open to the public who can see such sights as the Stone of Scone, the Scottish royal regalia known as the Honours, the National War Museum, the National War Memorial, and such famous giant medieval cannons as Mons Megs. The most popular tourist attraction in Scotland, the castle, together with the city of Edinburgh, is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

Tornado Dowm This is the second part of a two part episode. Check back in our feed to listen to part one 'The RAF Pilots Tortured During The Gulf War '. Operation Desert Storm was only a day old when Tornado pilots John Peters and John Nichol were shot down in Iraqi territory and subsequently tortured and paraded on TV. Bruised and battered, the two men mumbled incoherently into the camera, and instantly became symbols around the world of Saddam’s savagery and aggression. In Tornado Down the two pilots break their silence, and in a series of moving and candid interviews, reveal the physical and psychological torment they suffered at the hands of their captors; the brutal torture sessions; the elation of their release; and their determination not to crack in the face of such cruelty and humiliation.The original documentary was licensed by Nent to Little Dot Studios.Podcast edit production by Richard TannerYou can find more from us on:https://www.youtube.com/timelinechannelhttps://www.facebook.com/timelineWHhttps://www.instagram.com/timelineWHIf you would like to get in touch with the show, email us at timeline@littledostudios.com

Apollo Apollo written by Mark Cartwright and narrated by Kelly Macquire: https://www.worldhistory.org/apollo/

Apollo was a major Greek god associated with the bow, music, and divination. The epitome of youth and beauty, source of life and healing, patron of the arts, and as bright and powerful as the sun itself, Apollo was, arguably, the most loved of all the gods. He was worshipped at Delphi and Delos, amongst the most famous of all Greek religious sanctuaries.

Sisyphus Sisyphus written by Mark Cartwright and narrated by Kelly Macquire: www.worldhistory.org/sisyphus/

Sisyphus (or Sisyphos) is a figure from Greek mythology who, as king of Corinth, became infamous for his general trickery and twice cheating death. He ultimately got his comeuppance when Zeus dealt him the eternal punishment of forever rolling a boulder up a hill in the depths of Hades. Founder of the Isthmian Games and grandfather of Bellerophon, he is nowadays best remembered as a poignant symbol of the folly of those who seek to trifle with the natural order of things and avoid humanity's sad but inescapable lot of mortality. The adjective Sisyphean denotes a task which can never be completed.

The US vs Napoleon: The Second War for Independence In this episode, Mark discusses the Louisiana Purchase.  We start with an interlude and listen as the governor of the Louisiana territory prepares to transfer it to the US.  Next, Mark walks us through the international intrigue, high stakes diplomatic gambles, and plain American luck that lead Napolean to sell the territory to the scrappy, young USA. In our "what if" scenario, Mark details General Andres Jackson's war with the French, land deals with the Spanish, and rapid westward expansion, which takes unites the country from coast to coast.Pless play, and let's take a trip.
Attila Lives, Europe Dies Attila the Hun is perhaps one of History's most ruthless and feared leaders. Apart from his larger-than-life reputation, what do we really know about him?In this episode, Mark discusses Attila's upbringing,  his various battles, and his untimely death at age 47. Next, Mark imagines a world in which Atilla gets to live in his palace, in Rome, well into his golden years. What other lands would have Atilla conquered? How many millions more would have died under his sword?Plus,  we'll hear audio diaries from a Roman foot soldier and an unstoppable (and bougie) Attila the Hun.

Hitler Blows Up A lot of people tried to kill Hitler. As we already know, none of those people succeeded. In this week's episode, we start with an audio story depicting one of those failed attempts. Next, Mark walks us through some of the many failed plots to kill one of history's greatest villains. And then we ask: What if? We'll hear a short audio interlude where we meet Hitler's replacement. Finally, Mark gives us a short glimpse into a world in which an assassin successfully kills Hitler! How would this have changed the war? How many lives could have been saved? Press play, and let's take a trip.
Gettsyburg and Grant We muse how a Rebel victory at Gettysburg would affect the ascension of Ulysses S. Grant and the pace of the final chapter of the Civil War. It’s stunning to think but Lee’s victory would actually end the war 8-12 months earlier than our history books write.With the success at Vicksburg in July of 1863, Lincoln sees a rising military genius, who is hawkish and unafraid to aggressively pursue, and attack, the Confederate armies he faced. After the appalling casualties at the Battle of Shiloh in 1862, Lincoln dismissed Grant's critics, saying "I can't spare this man; he fights.”In our timeline, in August of 1863, Grant was promoted to Lieutenant General, giving him command of all Union armies. His new rank had only been held by one man in American history, George Washington.It’s important to note, what Grant will bring to the war, is different than any previous Union general. He will use the telegraph and other signal communications to modernize his command-and-control over the entire theater of operations. Prior to Grant's leadership, the armies operated independently to accomplish localized goals and defeat specific army groups. Grant will look at the theater in its entirety and coordinate attacks to strangle supplies and movement that will eventually render the Confederates incapable of fighting. Grant was not interested in capturing territory or towns unless those gains kept the Confederates from resupplying.Grant will coordinate with generals, review troop movements, and issue orders in near-real-time. Only Sherman, who had been ordered to go dark, was not in constant contact to utilize intelligence to pressure and attack the different Confederate armies, including Lee’s. Grant will also bring a completely new attitude to the Union army: “Attack, pressure, drive the initiative against the enemy.” This philosophy would embolden the ranks of Federal forces in a way that was badly needed, particularly after the loss at Gettysburg.Rather than mid-1864, our scenario has the coordinated theater-wide surge of Union forces happening during the late Summer months of 1863.
Vikings In North America History tells us that over the course of 500 years from 1000 CE to the 1500s, Norse presence in North America dwindled to nothing. And ultimately, their impact on the history of North America is fleeting. But What If the Vikings grew their settlements over the first five centuries here. What If they ultimately grew their presence to 30,000 or more in warmer areas like New York, Massachusetts, or even the Carolinas?Historians agree that their impact on Native American, European, and even our American history would be profound. It is not a very far stretch of the imagination to envision an aggressive Viking migration to a milder and more temperate climate hundreds of miles further south along the Atlantic Coast.With the Little Ice Age, both land and rations, and resources in Iceland, Greenland, England, and many parts of Europe were stretched beyond their ability to support local populations. A stable, growing settlement in Vinland would be attractive to many of these seafarers and peasants. We know this for sure because the migration repeats itself hundreds of years later with the Dutch, French, and English settlers.In our What If scenario we imagine what life would be like in a large Viking settlement in North America. We are not thinking about New Amsterdam, the Dutch settlement that later became New York. We will imagine Bjorn Buo, a town translated to mean “Bear Shelter”. In our story, Bjorn Bour is not the traditional Viking settlement of farms centrally located around longhouses and a stone church. Rather, it is a vibrant, bustling city of thousands of fishermen, boat builders, iron craftsmen, traders, farmers, hunters, butchers, bakers, and even a bishop. And we are about to walk its streets.
Panzer Punch Re-Shapes D-Day Instead of sleeping the crucial morning away, Hitler is awake and reacting to the landings along the Normandy coast. He utilizes nine Panzer divisions to drive a wedge in the beachhead and turn the course of D-Day as we know it.

Women in the Viking Age Women in the Viking Age written by Emma Groeneveld and narrated by Jennifer Sabir: https://www.worldhistory.org/article/1251/women-in-the-viking-age/



Although women in the Viking Age (c. 790-1100 CE) lived in a male-dominated society, far from being powerless, they ran farms and households, were responsible for textile production, moved away from Scandinavia to help settle Viking territories abroad stretching from Greenland, Iceland, and the British Isles to Russia, and were perhaps even involved in trade in the sparse urban centres. Some were part of a rich upper class, such as the lady – perhaps a queen – who was buried in the ostentatious Oseberg ship burial in 834 CE, while on the other end of the spectrum, slaves, among them many women, were taken from conquered territories during the Viking expansion and integrated into Viking Age society.
