Britain, Europe and the wider world since 6000 BC

A British Museum lecture by Professor Ian Morris

Professor Ian Morris of Stanford University offers a historical perspective to contemporary issues by reviewing the history of the British Isles, and the 8,000 years since rising sea levels physically separated them from the European continent. He conveys how the challenges facing Britain in the 2010s are neither new nor uniquely British, and how looking at these challenges over the long term reveals some surprising patterns that offer hints about the fate of the Western World in the 21st century.

Ian Morris is an archaeologist and historian who studies the long-run patterns of the past and their implications for our future. He has directed archaeological digs in Greece and Italy and has published 14 books, including Why the West Rules—For Now (2010), which has been translated into 14 languages.

At the BP Lecture Theatre, The British Museum, Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3DG

Tickets £ 8.00 / concessions £6.00
