Review: Britain's Lost Masterpieces: Season 2 - Episodes 1 & 2

Posted Yesterday at 03:03 AM by HistoricalGeek

Review: Britainís Lost Masterpieces: Season 2: Episode 1: Glasgow.

So, this time Bendor is joined by Emma Dabiri. I would complain about the lack of Jacky but honestly? I love that we got to see more of Emma.

As before Bendor is joyful to watch although slightly overshadowed by his co-star.

Emma is naturally vibrant and just a real joy to watch.

A must-watch for Art History fans.

Rating: 10/10.

Was Alexander as Great as they Say? (Controversial)

Posted October 20th, 2017 at 05:24 AM by NBSHistory

A series I created on Alexander the Great. I in no way believe him to not have been "great" I simply was displaying the many overlooked flaws in his character. Received some backlash, but if you watched all three parts I believe I make a valid point!


I am unsure if it simply because I was taught mostly on his flaws during my studies, but it seems to me this point of view is very surprising to the community here!

The role of Spartan Women prior to Roman Conquest

Posted October 17th, 2017 at 06:09 AM by NBSHistory

Hello, my name is Craig I am a student seeking to enter a graduate program in History. While attending to my studies I thought why not provide content on youtube as well? I do so to try and bring History to the youth, so its a mix of primary/secondary sourcing and humor!



This link is for my piece on Spartan Women prior to Roman Conquest. I used Sarah. B. Pomeroy's "Spartan Women" as major source for most of it!

Battle of Carrhae: An example of avarice.

Published by Radrook in the blog Flash Fiction 1. Views: 0
I have always been fascinated by the history of Rome-in particular its military success and reverses. One of the most interesting I find is the battle of Carrhae, a small town near which it took place, because it illustrates two things that the Bible tells us:

1. that the blind leading the blind will lead them all into a pit

Roman/ Carthage Conflict issues
Click the image to open in full size.Content
The contest that ensued between Rome and Carthage has always intrigued me. Here is one issue I found perplexing. Why didnít Carthage stop Romeís ascendency when it had the chance?

Carthaginian Indifference?

Rome didn't spring full-blown as a major Mediterranean power. Even after throwing off its Etruscan yoke it was vulnerable to attack by the Gauls. So
