How Grains Domesticated Us http://www.soas.ac.uk/foodstudies/forum/lectures/11dec2014-how-grains-domesticated-us.html

Date: 11 December 2014 06:30pm

Finishes:11 December 2014 08:00pm

Venue: Brunei Gallery

Room: Brunie Gallery Lecture Theatre

In this lecture, Scott asks how homo sapiens came, only in the last 5% of its long career on the planet, to live in concentrated heaps of people, grain, and domesticated animals and, later, to be governed by units we call states. He will argue that virtually all classical states were based on grains, which are suited to concentrated production, tax assessment, cadastral surveys, storage, and rationing.
