Episode 5, Ancient Burma and Nanzhao


Episode 5 is now online.  This time, the main topic is how the nation of Burma, also called Myanmar, got started.  We see the Burmese and tribes related to them settle northern Burma, followed by a special look at Arakan, a province that often went its own way.  Also in this episode, we see the Mons, a tribe we met previously, move the capital of their state in southern Burma, from Thaton to Bago.  Finally, we meet Nanzhao, Burma’s northern neighbor from the eighth to the thirteenth century.
