Tom and I review “The Dawn of Everything: A New History of Humanity“, a book written by David Graeber and David Wengrow.
The book challenges the traditional narratives of human history, which tend to focus on the rise of civilization and the development of agriculture. Instead, Graeber and Wengrow argue that the traditional narrative of human history is flawed and that there is evidence of a much longer and more diverse human history.
The book draws on a wide range of evidence, including archaeological finds, anthropological studies, and historical records. The authors argue that many of the assumptions that have been made about human history are based on incomplete evidence or flawed interpretations of the available data.
Overall, the book provides a new perspective on human history, one that challenges traditional narratives and highlights the diversity and complexity of human societies throughout time.
