Stealing History

In this episode, the Seven Ages team gathers at the Cross-Tyme Pub to discuss the latest stories from the world of history and archaeology. We begin with the recent paper concerning the Younger Dryas Impact and its ability to help date artifacts from various paleo sites across the United States. Next, we discuss a discovery from a Wyoming Clovis site of a small but significant bead and an underwater megalithic structure discovered in the Baltic Sea. 

Then we are joined by journalist Roger Atwood to discuss his incredible book Stealing History: Tomb Raiders, Smugglers, and the Looting of the Ancient World.
