Summary:
Beginning with a concise overview of brain evolution in early hominids and what appears to be barter behavior in chimps, this program traces the rudiments of the human wealth orientation as it developed at Wadi Faynan, a prehistoric agrarian settlement; at the ancient town of Catal Hoyuk; and at Uruk, a major Sumerian trading city. Host Peter Jay; Cambridge University's Nicholas Postgate; Hans Nissen, of the Free University of Berlin; archaeologist Steven Mithen; and others consider the transformative effect of farming, the commercial impact of obsidian, and the invention of proto-cuneiform as an accounting tool. A BBC Production. (51 minutes)

Only available in the US.
