Trade and Conflict in Ancient Egypt

Ancient Egypt

Ancient Egypt rose to dominate the Middle East for thousands of years because of its natural resources, political unity and military strength. Egyptians conducted trade with people in Africa, the Mediterranean and across the Red Sea. But there were also conflicts with neighbours. Two key military campaigns - the Battle of Megiddo and the Battle of Kadesh - led by Thutmose III and Ramesses II are vividly explored in this programme.

Japan Under the Shoguns

For nearly 700 years, Japan was ruled by a series of military leaders known as shoguns. The first half of this clip provides a chronological timeline of key events from the imperial Nara and Heian periods through to the three shogunates: Kamakura, Muromachi and Tokugawa. The second half looks at the way of life in shogunate Japan (social, cultural, political and economic). Social class hierarchy within this feudal system is explained, including the status and roles of Daimyos, Samurai and peasants. Examples of the strict edicts that impacted social class, religion and political conflict are given. Led by a Japanese presenter, artistic depictions from the era and easy to follow graphic timelines and maps tell the story of this important period in Japan’s history.
