Yes, I know some of you will disagree that I say History Begins at Sumer around 3200 BCE. I’m aware (as is every historian) that earlier settlements (like gobekli tepe) existed before Sumer, but I consider that prehistory. History, as an academic subject (rather than history defined as everything that has happened in the past), involves intelligible writing that scholars can read today. Also, if you disagree with any of the events I’ve chosen for any reason and want to discuss it, please watch the full length video pertaining to that event first (e.g. The Flood Murders Everyone, 2900 BCE) to understanding the context and why I choose that event for that century. Thanks!
These Shorts are all clips from my Full-Length Videos already posted on YouTube. For this short, it’s under this title: #13 — The Minoan “Greek” Civilization is Founded. In general, New Full-Length Videos are posted roughly every 2-4 weeks on YouTube!
All my Full-Length Videos fit into a larger project, Project Zero: 53 Most Important Historical Dates, and Project Zero will be connected to all future projects, and Historian Interviews. Each Project is designed to be bite-size, comprehensive, and useful. If interested, see my Intro Videos to both this channel and Project Zero to learn more and to participate.
I’ve also organized all these Shorts into a Playlist if you’re more interested in A Quick History Lesson here and there, rather than committing to an entire project. These Shorts can also be found in other Playlists too, such as, Ancient Mesopotamia, Ancient Egypt, Writing & Literature, etc.
My primary focus is the historical information in each video (and to a lesser degree, I’m working on improving my video production and pacing with each new video), so if you can add to it or disagree with it, then please explain and cite your source(s). I’m here to learn too, and I’d love to supplement these videos with credible information that either corroborates or contradicts them.
Lastly, due to my busy schedule, I’ll be answering questions on all platforms on Monday nights. Thank you!
