Blog Love: Surprised by Time

Too often ancient Greece gets all the glory, but we forget about Byzantine and later Greek history which can be just as fascinating. Diana Gilliland Wright has a fascinating blog about the Greece we too often forget, often concentrating on the family of the Despots of Mystra, who are almost better documented than the rulers in Constantinople because so many Western sources survive.

This post concerns Cyriaco, who made the earliest surviving modern drawings of the Parthenon, and his visit to Mycenae: Surprised by Time: Cyriaco's Mycenae

I do not moderate comments, but I remove spam, overt self-promotion ("read [link] my much better post on this") and what I consider hate speech (racism, homophobia etc).
