Doing some reading for my series on the steppe for my Substack, Empires of Ancient Eurasia: The First Silk Roads Era, 100 BCE – 250 CE is worth reading. The focus is on the silk road, 2,000 years ago.
Also, rereading David Anthony’s The Horse, the Wheel, and Language: How Bronze-Age Riders from the Eurasian Steppes Shaped the Modern World. It’s a good book and stands the test of time. We know so much from ancient DNA it’s more rewarding to read, not less.
Pantheon: A New History of Roman Religion. Dense but informative.
