Anthony Sattin is a British writer and broadcaster who has been described as “one of the key influences on travel writing today.” His award-winning journalism on travel and books has appeared regularly in the Sunday Times, Financial Times, Conde Nast Traveller, and publications around the world. His most recent book is Nomads: The Wanderers Who Shaped Our World, a ground-breaking story of Nomadic peoples on the move across history.

My co-editor, Nathan James Thomas, recently interviewed Anthony and spoke with him about the role Nomads have played over the course of human history, including their part in developing the first monuments. They also discussed how and why we need to rethink the way that societies developed, as well as the challenges and opportunities facing travel writers today.

Nomads moves through 12,000 years of human history and gets at the core of where we come from, offering a more expansive view of how we imagine ourselves.
