Harun al-Rashid: The Life and Legacy of the Abbasid Caliph during the Islamic Golden Age

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes medieval accounts*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsLike many historical figures, Harun al-Rashid’s biography has become part reality and part myth. A real individual and the fourth caliph of the Abbasid Caliphate, Harun al-Rashid is best known to many individuals because of his role in famous literature like One Thousand and One Nights, not necessarily because of his policy decisions. This is unusual because Harun al-Rashid was perhaps the most influential of the Abbasid caliphs due to his role in bringing economic prosperity, destroying one of the most powerful Islamic families of the 9th century CE, and ending the Abbasid Dynasty for good.The reputation of Harun al-Rashid is a controversial one over...

Queens of the Viking Age: The Oseberg Ship and the Oseberg Grave - Archeology (Omega Viking Series Book 3)

by Omega Viking Series

The Oseberg ship burial is a Viking Age burial mound containing a double female inhumation, which is located in the Oslofjord area in Norway. Through dendrochronological analysis it has been possible to determine the year in which the timbers of the grave chamber were felled, and the burial has consequently been dated to AD834. A popular study of Oseberg has been that of focusing on the women buried in the mound in order to give them an identity. At first Snorri Sturluson’s Ynglingasaga was used and it was proposed that the burial was that of Queen Åsa or of Queen Alvhild, who are the only two queens mentioned in the saga.There are many questions and mysteries about Oseberg that have not yet been answered. We still do not know for sure who was buried in the mound, what position this per...

We can see more clearly across the mists of time how Hannibal conquered at Cannea, than why Joffre won at the Marne. No great acquisition of strength to either side - except that usually invaders outrun their supplies and defenders fall back upon their reserves - important, but not decisive. Not much real fighting, comparatively few casualties, no decisive episode in any part of the immense field; fifty explanations, all well documented, five hundred volumes of narrative and comment - but the mystery remains." – Winston ChurchillThe enduring image of World War I is of men stuck in muddy trenches, an...

History of the Byzantine Empire: Rise and fall of the Eastern Roman Empire from Constantine the Great to fall of Constantinople

by Interesting History

The history of the Byzantium Empire is based on Byzantine and non-Byzantine sources. The starting point is given by Byzantine historians and chroniclers who with more or less accuracy write about historical events.Roman state organization, Greek culture, and Christianity are the foundations of the Byzantine Empire. This merger was due to the displacement of the Roman Empire to the East, caused by the great crisis of the third century. At first, the history of Byzantium was considered only the continuation of the Roman Empire. The name "Byzantium" originates from a later period. Its inhabitants called themselves the Romans, and their rulers were regarded as Roman emperors. Considering itself for the only legal empire of the world, Byzantium wanted the reign of all the countries of the forme...

THE ART OF MAKING WINE: According to the Doctrine of Chaptal.

by translator] Matthew Lynch

They were the best of times, they were the worst of times. The French Revolution had just given way to the Napoleonic Empire, while another Revolution was brewing- or at least fermenting- in vineyards all over France. "Citizen" Chaptal, Minister of the Interior, scholar, and renaissance man, introduced a revolution in wine making. To this day chaptalization is the term used for the use of calcium carbonate and sugar to improve the quality of wine. This is the simple manual that was sent out to vintners so that wine across France could be transformed from the often sour mess that it had once been to the reliably tasty and durable beverage we all know and love today. This book watershed moment in wine history, and even provides enough information for the enterprising wino to begin his o...

Undeterred by the work, and the fact that several would-be pioneers died in crashes trying to control gliders, the Wright Brothers tested out gliding at Kitty Hawk in North Carolina for several years, working to perfect pilot control before trying pow...
