Originally broadcast as a documentary mini-series on PBS in 2018.

Having lived as mobile foragers for 99% of our time on Earth, how and why did humans set out on the road to civilization? How did they create villages, towns, cities and states, and establish the blueprint for the modern world? Unearth the latest archaeological discoveries, test new theories, and uncover original information about the lost world of the first civilizations. In each of the four episodes, discover how our ancestors were motivated by the same impulses that persist today--the inevitability of war, a need for religion, the lure of the city, and a love of trade.
