A guide to integrating Byzantium into the teaching of medieval history, giving it an extra dimension. Byzantium impinges on mainstream medieval history at many points, from Clovis' Franks to the rise of the Italian maritime city states and on into the Italian Renaissance. It is easy to give up on Byzantium as being simply too 'technical', but with the Mini-Glossary and, ideally, a Greek-reading colleague to pinpoint a few terms, you will be able to take your students straight to the sources.
