In the previous part of the episode, we learned how linguists were able to reconstruct bits of the ancient & long lost Indo-European language. In this episode, we’ll discover what can these words tell us about life in the Bronze Age, family ties, and nomadic relationships. We’ll also learn about the links between Genetics & Linguistics: a recent genetic finding that explains the unprecedented success of that language: a single lucky mutation that enabled the Yamna People, as they are called today, to digest milk.
