Byzantine Merchandise!

High Speed History have Byzantine-themed merchandise available!

The good people over at have produced a range of delightful items featuring our beloved Byzantium. We’re talking t-shirts, hoodies, bags, clocks, towels and stickers amongst many other items.

I’m very pleased to say that some of your ideas have made their way into the collection. I asked for your input on social media and you came up with great ideas. If you want to celebrate your love of Justinian or Belisarius then an Empire Strikes Back t-shirt could be yours. Or if you’ve been dying to show your support for the Green faction or the Blues but they won’t let you in the Hippodrome anymore then fear not because a Green or Blue iphone case or mouse mat or t-shirt could be yours. Or what about the most adorable item of all – a baby grow with porphyrogennitos on it. Come on, how could you resist?

Please go to to check out the full range. If you decide to buy something then use the code ‘byzantium’ at checkout to get a pound or dollar off each item you purchase. And you’ll be helping out the podcast as I will get a little something for sending you there. Anyone can buy these items – they ship worldwide. And this discount also applies to any items you purchase from the Greek or Roman sections of the website. Yes High Speed History has merch from a variety of historical eras check them all out at

I also did a written interview for the site to lure in those of you who find me weirdly interesting. So if you want to know my favourite film or what I’d put on a billboard in a busy city then check out the interview here.

Happy browsing.

  1. Hi Robin
    Striking merchandise.
    I’m sorry so I missed it when you asked for ideas for merchandise. Perhaps, next time you might consider reprinting designs from Byzantine ceramics? They may appeal more to your female listeners e.g., Diogenes Akritas and his Lover
    This 13th century artefact is held by the Archaeological Museum of Corinth and the image is held by the National Gallery of America
    There are a lot of these ceramics designs created by Byzantines in Cyprus. I’ve found many curious and engaging designs on Pinterest under a Byzantine ceramics search.

    • Oops! National Gallery of Art in the US. You’ll have to scroll down on the linked page to the option “Byzantine Ceramics”

      • Thanks so much for the feedback. I will pass that on to ‘High Speed History.’ I did not create the merchandise I just sent listener ideas to them.

    “Blank product sourced from China”

    I understand that you have no control over where they source their materials, but I’m not interested until I can buy merch that isn’t sourced from China. Just some friendly feedback 🙂
