Star's History Blog

A blog wherein I link all the amazing things I read about on the net related to history. My favourite historical periods are 1150-1250AD, Late Byzantium, Song Dynasty China, pre-Columbus Silk Road, Ancient Egypt, and the Viking Rus/Varangian Guards. But what I post won't be limited to those. :)
