Byzantium: The Lost Empire

Byzantium: The Lost Empire

Following last week’s post about Byzantium, we thought it would be great to show you a fantastic documentary on this exact topic.  The documentary on the Byzantine Empire was originally aired on TV and is shown in 3 parts.  It has been loaded to YouTube for your viewing pleasure.

The video covers the entire timeline of Byzantine (Eastern Roman Empire) from it’s creation in the Middle Ages to it’s fall in the year 1453, when it was overrun by soldiers of the Ottoman Empire.  These documentaries take us through the building of the capital city of Constantinople, multiple events throughout centuries 4, 5, and 6, the rule of emperor Constantine, the legalization of the religion of Christianity, the rules of Heraclius and Justinian, and much more.

Enjoy!
