I’ve enjoyed 4 out of 5 lectures
I enjoyed all of the lectures except #3. Too much time on the hippodrome and the statues. We are art lovers esp sculpture but this was too much on one style.
Thomas is a wonderful teacher with interesting stories..
A very interesting and informative discussion of the unlikely fall of Constantiople during the 4th crusades.
Lecture #3 of this 6 part Course on Instanbul, came alive. I was at the Hippodrome, not sure to cheer for the Greens or Blues. Thomas Madden is a well informed story teller!
