Episode 37 – Amorite 6 Petty Kings

The multi-polar Isin-Larsa period continues this week, covering the period from the 1860s to the 1830s BCE. This week is a bit easier that the mess of last week, because we are slowly consolidating to only three major players, Isin, Larsa, and Babylon, and the first two see the coming of benevolent, peaceful kings that actually seem to care at least a little bit about the common citizens of their cities. This state of affairs won’t last forever, but it is nice while it lasts.

Audio quality is terrible again this week, I can’t seem to keep a consistent set-up from episode to episode. I will try and get it improved again for next week, but there is a lot of construction both in my apartment building and in the lot next door, so it is a bit of a challenge.
