A new Axial Age? Epoch-making changes around 3000 BCE in Southwest Asia and Europe

Was the time around 3000 BCE in Southwest Asia and Europe something that can be called an "Axial Age"? Closely related to our exploration "Axial Ages - Time Axes", Dr. Eva Rosenstock, discussed this in her talk at the last Summer School "Doorway to Human History", organized by the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History, Jena. The recording of her talk is now available online for watching.
