    What defines a civilization? How did the first states emerge? How were the world's ancient states similar and different? Answer these and other dramatic questions with this grand 48-lecture course that reveals how human beings around the world transitioned from small farming communities to the impressive cultural and political systems that would alter the course of history.

    "Not good as an intro to civilazations."

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I was looking for an entry point to the study of how civilizations arose. This lecture series ended up going into significant detail about archeological methods and various early civilizations (much much more detail than I wanted). If you're looking for a basic intro to summarize basic archeology and how and in what context the major civilizations arose, this is not ideal. Though, I imagine for somebody who already has a basic understanding of ancient civilizations, this degree of detail would likely be welcomed.
