Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire


Here's the series that first got me into Opencourseware. Yale professor Freedman begins by talking about the greatness of the Roman Empire. The free college course ends at 1000 A.D with the Vikings. This course was offered for college credit. However, watching the lectures on Youtube saves $5000. Books such as Boethius' Consolation of Philosophy are mentioned in course. Each video has one or two books students in the course are assigned to read. The aforementioned book was the only one I read which Dr. Freedman mentioned.

I like professor Freedman’s classes. I have those on MP3 and heard them a couple of times when jogging or driving. I think that they are among the best history videos on YouTube.
