Between a rock and a hard place in the Tropic of Cancer during 800-900CE

HHE Podcast

Pete takes on a round-the-world challenge and finds himself between a rock and a hard place on the Tropic of Cancer. We discover the surprising product that rated alongside gold in value on the trans-Saharan trade routes and we meet a pair of travelling historians whose journeys took them from Africa to China. Also, learn how a failed rebellion can still bring down a dynasty, and find out how you might apply for your harlot’s license in 9th Century China.
