What a ride!

Most of us are like Robin and we grew up hearing almost nothing about the history of the Eastern Roman Empire. I imagine it stems from the prejudice of the Enlightenment period to degrade all things not of Western Europe. A thousand years of history basically ignored. Thank you Robin for doing the homework for us and being a great storyteller:)

Great history and entertainment

Great entertainment and fantastic narration of the history of the Roman Empire of the East.
I grew up in Sicily lived in Rome and walked and and experienced the outcome of these forces that shaped Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. Art, traditions, language, architecture, political organization, technology, religions.
It is wonderful to have it all integrated in a seamless narrative that provides a cohesive enlightening framework.
Thanks for your efforts I would recommend it to anyone who is a history lover and to the neophytes alike
