I'd been looking forward to another chance to attend this seminar since I had missed the December offering. Dr. Durand does not disappoint. He is passionate about his subject and obviously an expert in his field. I really enjoyed his presentation and would be interested in more presentations by Dr. Durand.
Informative review of an extensive period of history. Slides were helpful and descriptions well done. Brief comments on current Turkey were insightful, and presenter's energy in the telling was great.
It was an interesting coverage of over two thousand years of history at a place that has had a major role during almost all of that time. He facts about the city and pictures or drawings of the city from the beginning to today. he had suggests of places that you can still see.
I found the presenter very knowledgeable and enthusiastic however as an English-speaking person I found it hard to understand him about 50-70% of the time.
Superb presentation of Istanbul historical sites from Constantine to now.
