Byzantium, originally called Byzantion, was a city belonging to Ancient Greece but was never actually in Greece. It is the modern-day Istanbul, a city in Turkey. The history of Byzantium can be traced back as far as 657 BC but a lot of it is legend. Byzantium was founded by a king or leader from Megara named Byzas Continue reading

Welcome to my 26 Posts!

I will be doing a series of posts, amounting to 26. They will be on a subject related to history and and I will briefly touch on them because otherwise I will get carried away.

What was the one experience that completely changed your life? What happened? How did it change your life?

Well, everything we do changes everything, much like a butterfly effect, but completely changed my life? I suppose one such Continue reading

Sometimes I enjoy it and I’ve even been known to crave someone to talk to. But, in Continue reading
