Right about now is the first time we see the first mentions of the Romani people (aka “gypsies) in Europe, and that’s of course in Byzantium. It’s a really fascinating story, because a lot of the time they were really good at playing into the Romans desires, for example spinning fantastical tales about their Biblical origins. I think it’d be a really fascinating topic either for the next end-of-the-century episodes (I say as we’ve just begun a new century!) or as a Byzantine Story.
An excellent episode as always! Thank you for all your hard work Robin!
