Following on from his bestselling History of Britain in Maps, historian and author Philip Parker joins us to talk about his new book, History of World Trade in Maps. From the ancient Egyptians who went searching for gold to the trading of high-tech electronic equipment in the 21st century, trade has been the lifeblood of nations for centuries. Philip shares the extraordinary stories of merchants, adventurers, middle-men and monarchs who bought, sold, explored and fought in search of profit and power and ultimately shaped our world as we know it.
