It's Rome! It's Greece! It's... The Byzantine Empire! Check out how late Imperial Rome transformed in the centuries from Constantine to Justinian, as it evolved into a new and unique iteration of Roman civilization. Watch as Byzantine craftsmen revolutionize artwork by throwing a megaton of gold onto every last mosaic in the mediterranean, and radically reimagine architecture by asking "But what if *dome*?"

FURTHER READING: "Byzantium: The Early Centuries" by John Julius Norwich was a fantastic read, and I would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to learn more about this period. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byzanti...
