Through her letters today we know that she was in Split, ruins of ancient Salona, Sibenik and Zadar. She left us also beautiful photographs in the beginning of 20th century.
This tour reveals the history behind the Gold Rush witnessed by Melbourne from the 1850s. We will trace this history of Melbourne from its growth beginning with a visit to the Old Treasury Museum, before we dive off down laneways and arcades. In the company of a local expert, we’ll uncover how this sleepy sheep town became one of the largest cities in the British Empire. We begin at the Old Treasury Building, one of Melbourne’s oldest and finest buildings and symbolic of the financial impact of the Gold Rush. We’ll look at this through the lens of the treasury building and other icons of Melbourne’s built environment, including the so-called “Gothic Bank” where ANZ Bank makes its world headquarters today.We will also explore Melbourne’s famous laneways and arcades, most of which date to the end of the 19th century and are a direct result of the boomtown atmosphere here.

Sid Meier's Civilization VI couldn't be named the part of this long and great series without proper civilizations. Each country is different not only thanks to the leader (and believe us, that leaders are great, with their own personalities and characters). Not only they have different special units and buildings, but also prefer various gamestyles. For example, American nation is created specifically for late game. Quite slow and sluggish at the very beginning but easily capable of leaving enemy in dust after the game enters into a final phase.Their special ability focuses on government itself, where bonuses accumulate twice as fast as in other nations. Furthermore Roosevelt is a peaceful leader who hates people who start wars on his continent. British, on the other hand, under the guide of queen Victoria is a nation which is perfect for naval domination. With their special unit Sea Dog and Royal Navy Dockyard, they are able to easily dominate almost all nations in the naval warfare.Victoria is friendly towards all nations on her continent and she is going to try to expand quickly. As you can see, if you want to be a good leader you have to pick a civilization which fits your gameplay style and also learn about personalities of different leaders.

This course will examine the growth and development of the largest empire in world history - the British Empire - beginning with the late 15th century Tudor dynasty in England and ending with the death of the Queen-Empress Victoria in 1901.By the beginning of the 20th century, there were very few countries or people who had not been affected, one way or another, by the impact of the British. The Empire itself by then covered over a quarter of the world's land surface, the Royal Navy dominated the oceans, and one in every four human beings lived under British rule.Yet despite all of this global power and the emergence of Britain by the beginning of the nineteenth century as the world's first true superpower, the British Empire had very humble, small-scale origins.In the course, we shall proceed chronologically, but also look more closely at particular themes and countries. The course will not provide a fully comprehensive survey, an enormous task anyway; rather, we shall seek to uncover and understand the essential historical truths about this mightiest of empires. 1.

How did we get here, to this time and place in history? Are we repeating history's mistakes because we did not learn about the pivotal events that shaped the modern world? This three-book history course helps you quickly understand the nuances and the impact of three crucial periods portrayed in countless films: the Crusades and of the rise and fall of two great empires, the Roman and British. The culture, technology, law, and military organization of the Roman Empire shaped western civilization. Determined to spread their rule, the Romans succeeded magnificently until human nature and other factors led to the empire's collapse. Were current relationships between Christians and Muslims determined when the knights of the Crusades rode off on their grand quest? By the beginning of the 20th century, the British Empire and its superior navy claimed territory larger than that of any other empire in history, but its overreach foretold its downfall. This insightful and critically acclaimed history of the British Empire spans from the 17th century to contemporary time and combines comprehensive scholarship with popular history. 1.

Australian deserts remain dotted with the ruins of old mosques. Beginning with a Bengali poetry collection discovered in a nineteenth-century mosque in the town of Broken Hill, Samia Khatun weaves together the stories of various peoples colonized by the British Empire to chart a history of South Asian diaspora. Australia has long been an outpost of Anglo empires in the Indian Ocean world, today the site of military infrastructure central to the surveillance of 'Muslim-majority' countries across the region. Imperial knowledges from Australian territories contribute significantly to the Islamic-Western binary of the post- Cold War era. In narrating a history of Indian Ocean connections from the perspectives of those colonized by the British, Khatun highlights alternative contexts against which to consider accounts of non-white people. Australianama challenges a central idea that powerfully shapes history books across the Anglophone world: the colonial myth that European knowledge traditions are superior to the epistemologies of the colonized. Arguing that Aboriginal and South Asian language sources are keys to the vast, complex libraries that belie colonized geographies, Khatun shows that stories in colonized tongues can transform the very ground from which we view past, present and future.
