Fall of Roman Empire

Captivating!

A very interesting and pleasant interview

Not a class. There are some background noises (a parrot?) that are more amusing than annoying. Leaves you wanting to hear his whole class on the subject.

BoogieDownKid ,

Far too bias.

I came looking for and unbiased critique of some possible reasons Rome fell (among the many) and found a much to enamored talk which left out everything critical about Rome. Even the connection between Rome and Europe is a leap. Far too biased and one sided. History should be told from the disparate perspectives of those who experienced; especially when told by a history professional. Very very disappointing.
