I had to watch the recording before giving this interview. As usual Nina wieda was wonderful and I learned alot about the circassians, the Ottomans empire and the Cossacks.
Nina is a a great storyteller and here is a great new discovery!
Nieda once again gives an amazing presentation! I know little about the area but she really made me curious for more.She is so knowledgeable about the region, the people and events. Organization and ability to pique my interest will keep me coming back. I am looking forward to the Amazon presentation.
This was an absolutely terrific lecture. Dr. Wieda used the through line of Piracy on the Black Sea to give a lecture that incorporated social history, military tactics, and religion while giving a general overview of the history of the Black Sea region. Her presentation was engaging and fascinating, and I came away with a pile of cool history facts! If you like learning about "unusual" history (meaning non-Western Europe focused and with only a little political history thrown in), or even just history in general, this lecture is a fantastic choice.
