As you can see from my location, I'm from Croatia. I have to admit that I'm somehow ashamed of my Slavic descent.

I have been spending some time reading posts on the forum called Skadi forum, about Germanic superiority over Slavs, even over ancient cultures like the Romans, Greeks, Egyptians etc. They were saying that the reason behind the Roman and Greek success is that the ruling class was comprised of people with blonde hair and blue eyes ruling over the tan skinned population....

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

Posted October 21st, 2017 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.

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!
