Let's Play the Past: Civilization V

Let's Play the Past: Civilization V

John talks about ancient Chinese religion and culture in this episode, the first of a short series on Civilization V. Apologies for the technical problems with this episode; we're working out the kinks and things should be working more smoothly from the next episode onward. See part 2 here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txN1sX9v5Z8
Part 2 of John's live stream of a quick game of Civilization V playing as China. In this episode he talks a little bit about Confucian influence in the Chinese state, the importance of the Han Dynasty and its fall, and some comments on how we talk about history and how the historian is connected to his or her facts (and the developer to his or her game).
In part 3 John talks about the Tang and Song dynasties, Buddhism in Chinese government and economic methods of dealing with military threats.
