Premodern Worlds - A History through Objects: Ayyubid Basin

This is a 15 minute podcast based on the structure of the BBC series 'History of the World in 100 Objects' that I created for my Ignatius seminar class last semester. The goal of the podcast is to make the reader think about the depth of history behind objects when they go to a museum. Since this object is, at face value, very simple and possibly boring to a normal person, it makes it much more interesting when you can delve into its past and significance.
