"We are all children of Byzantium."

is what it says on the tin, a blog about Byzantium. It is written by Tom and Kim Sawford, with the occasional guest post by Laura Diaz-Arnesto. The blog has been going for over a year and a half now, and so has an extensive backlog of posts on a wide variety of subjects, for example: Byzantine holy relics in Siena in Tuscany
, Princess Theophano who married Holy Roman Emperor Otto II
, photos of mosaics and other art
, the horrific realities of prostitution
, the islands of Thasos and Lemnos
and a couple of posts on Byzantine medicine, mandrake
. Besides essays and photos the blog also links to various sites, articles, podcasts et cetera that dwell on Byzantine matters.
