    1. History in the old school: names, dates, battles, and not much else. Not a bad example but not much more substantial than a wall chart.



    2. The ancient Greek city of Byzantium (Constantinople, Istanbul) founded in 667 BC was center to the Byzantine Empire until it was conquered by the Ottoman Turks in 1457 AD. While decadence and corruption were undeniably major components of the story of the Byzantine empire, when much of Europe was in the Dark Ages Byzantium remained a major center of education and learning and was the medium through which much knowledge of the ancient Greek and Roman world was communicated to the present world.Th [...]



    3. Breezy overview for those casually interested in Eastern Roman Empire.

(Especially last two chapters nearing the fall of the capital)May be just me, but the presentation is oddly remindful of classics public domain work by e.g. Livy. There is long list of kings, some slap-dash explanati [...]


    4. Having been to the Byzantium exhibition at the Royal Academy, I realised just how little I actually know about Byzantium. So I thought I'd make a start on fixing that. However, this is a bit too much of a whistlestop tour, and doesn't do much more than give a very brief introduction to the whos and whens, without much analysis.

    6. Mercifully short, not very well-written overview of the Byzantine Empire. I got very tired of Morgan's repetitive use of "it is thought that" or "it was recorded that" or "it is known that." Yeeesh.
