The Ancient to the Modern World
The period from 650 to 1750 AD was when major civilisations came into contact with each other. Social, political, economic and religious beliefs were often challenged and significantly changed. It was the period when the modern world began to take shape. The programme presents the rise, fall, and connections between the Byzantines, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, Mongols and Ottomans.
The Renaissance, Scientific Revolution and Enlightenment
The 14th – 18th century was a notable period in history that radically transformed the way we see the world and our place in it. Traditional understandings and worldviews faced major challenges and changes in science, philosophy and society. This was a revolutionary time for scholars, artists, radicals, scientists, free thinkers and philosophers. It was a time for the new ideas which would ultimately shape our modern world.
