Tides of History is a podcast about history. I am enjoying listening to the podcast because it brings out nuances in our favorite game FreeCiv!

For a few episodes its about the end of the western Roman empire the one based in Rome. He also spends time on the eastern Roman empire, the one based in Constantinople now Istanbul. He also spends time in the 1300s to the 1500s. He basically considers Europe as being a backwater in that timeframe compared to what was happening around the edges of the Indian ocean. It almost makes me want to sit down and create an Indian ocean scenario similar to the large map of Europe scenario. Also, I would recommend that the printing press be added technology, allowing the Gutenberg bible to be added as a small Wonder.
