Hello again everyone,
I found this SUPER interesting video (actually a 3 part series) today and want to share it with you all. It mentions some things that many people don’t know about Eritrean history… especially the ancient history of both the nation and the region. Best of all, it cites all of its sources in each slide so that you can either confirm the information or decide to dig deeper if you read something of particular interest.
I must admit that its a little clunky as videos go (not always enough time between slides to read and digest all of the information). But I found that over all, it was definitely worth the patience needed. I was interested to learn some more details concerning the Eritrea-Europe connection. We often hear much about the colonial period (both Italian and later English influences); but learning more concerning the connection to ancient empires such as Greece, Rome and the more recent Russian link were fascinating.
