In this episode we look at the history of the world in its relation to the early history of Spain and the dawn of the Modern Age. From thousands of years ago through the Greeks, Romans, Visigoths, and the arrival of the Moors.

"At the time that the New World and Old World exchange began, things were very different. That is almost an understatement of the fact because the exchange between them was a revolution of such a grand scale that it had impacts all over the planet. But to begin simply, let’s state that Spain did not exist as we now know it. In fact, for the places we call France, England, Spain, and Germany, for starters, the actual circumstances were far different. It was, to put it simply, a different world. There were 1500 independent political entities compared to the twenty or so we now recognize as European nation-states. The nation-state as we now know it did not begin coming into existence until the late 1700s. The European invasion of the Americas coincided with, and funded, the developments of the nation-state. What became Spain was divided into the Kingdoms of Castile & Leon, Aragon, Galicia, Asturias, and Granada."
