Welcome to ByzRoma1453

The study of Romans and their neighbours in Late Antiquity and the Medieval period.

The site’s main aim is to get more people involved in Late Antique and Byzantine history. The themes and structure of blog post will vary, ranging from book reviews, mini-articles, interviews, top ten lists, character profiles and more. Posts will be uploaded weekly – on Saturday mornings.

Due to work commitments the blog will not receive any further regular update posts until the new year (2021). But when it is back – be sure to tune in!

If you want to keep up to date with what I am doing – make sure to follow me on Twitter!

‘Romans, the name which is far-famed and honoured among the nations, the name which because of its glory is clothed with honour on many lips…’

Theophylact Simocatta, History. I. 1. 5.
