Irresistable Videos on the Ancient Silk Road
In the world of archaeology, few topics are more interesting, controversial and entertaining than the whole combined issues of Indo European Language Dispersal and its dozens and dozens of mysteries and controversies. You may not realize that you are living immersed in these mysteries, but you are, you are one of them. You speak one (or more) of the languages that is at the heart of the mystery.
The Penn Museum had a seminar on some of these issues which had as speakers the superstars of this world: Colin Renfrew, J P Mallory, Victor Mair and so forth.
Its all online, which is wonderful.
Now you can waste another day or two of your life learning about this stuff.
