An interview with Professor Peter Frankopan about his book ‘The First Crusade: The Call from the East.’
Peter Frankopan is Professor of Global History at Oxford University and Stavros Niarchos Foundation Director of the Oxford Centre for Byzantine Research. He specialises in the history of the Byzantine Empire, Russia, the Middle East, Central Asia and China. He translated the Alexiad for Penguin Classics in 2009 and wrote ‘The First Crusade: The Call from the East’ in 2012 which I highly recommend. Since then he’s written two award winning books about the Silk Roads. Tracing their impact on world history as well as contemporary events. Find out more about his work at peterfrankopan.com.
