For anyone interested in the Byzantine Empire or history in general, you should check out part one of my two part guest blog over at Robert Horvat’s The History of the Byzantine Empire!

I was fortunate enough to write about this subject, one I’m fairly interested in myself. It’s a little different than what I tend to post here (for now!), but it’s well worth the read! 

Ah, the Huns!

In history, we often recall the civilized empires that brought upon the foundations of society. We think of the incredible “socially correct” Romans, the Greeks, the Assyrians. But what is the word we recall when we think of the nomadic warriors of the Huns? Barbaric.

In this post, we’ll go through the entire history of the barbaric civilization that terrorized such “advanced” societies throughout their existence. Deep within Eastern Europe and Central Asia lived the nomadic Huns, a military powerhouse that were unpredictable thanks in part to a lack of societal organization.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

I’m a writer and historian. Simple enough, right? I enjoy philosophy, sociology, social psychology, politics, basic programming, statistics, and old books. Unlike the stereotypical leftist, I do not necessarily censor myself. I apologize in advance if you find yourself offended by something I’ve said; but I do enjoy hearing criticism and having debates.

    How could you compare and contrast women’s roles in New England with women’s roles in The South? Colonial America had a rather deep division between the north and south.

    Napoleon Bonaparte, Anne Boleyn, and the Image of History

    When it comes to history, we have to remain skeptical about traditional facts. Now, that doesn’t mean we should accept fake history. It means we shouldn’t take everything history presents to us as acceptable. Historians should go against the flow of contemporary politics, going as far to be at war with the victors in a sense.
