Millennium AudioBook Summary
History’s greatest tour guide, Ian Mortimer, takes us on an eye-opening and expansive journey through the last millennium of human innovation.
In Millennium, best-selling historian Ian Mortimer takes the listener on a whirlwind tour of the last 10 centuries of Western history. It is a journey into a past vividly brought to life and bursting with ideas, that pits one century against another in his quest to measure which century saw the greatest change.
We journey from a time when there was a fair chance of your village being burned to the ground by invaders – and dried human dung was a recommended cure for cancer – to a world in which explorers sailed into the unknown and civilizations came into conflict with each other on an epic scale. Here is a story of godly scientists, fearless adventurers, coldhearted entrepreneurs, and strong-minded women – a story of discovery, invention, revolution, and cataclysmic shifts in perspective.
