By Steppe, Desert, and Ocean: The Birth of Eurasia

By Steppe, Desert, and Ocean: The Birth of Eurasia by Barry W. Cunliffe

A rather technical book about the civilizations in Europe and Asia and their technological and cultural changes and exchanges.

Full of bits like the first evidence of wheels existing (on a pot found in Poland), the way Bactria had an unusual amount of Hellenistic influence, and other such details.
