A Trip Around the World of the Year 1000

World History; Globalization; Exploration

Valerie Hansen (Stanley Woodward Professor of History, Yale University)

January 27, 2022

Please join me for a tour around the world in the year 1000. We will travel along known routes and use transport of the time. (Spoiler alert: it will take us much longer than 80 days!) Beginning in China, we'll see Southeast and South Asia on our way to Baghdad, the center of the Islamic world, go overland across Europe, sail to North America, and weigh the evidence for ocean travel between Ecuador and Polynesia.
