The History of Byzantium


Episode 271 – Twilight Cities with Katherine Pangonis

I talk to Katherine Pangonis about her new book – Twilight Cities: Lost Capitals of the Mediterranean. In it she travels to Tyre, Carthage, Syracuse, Ravenna and Antioch to tell their stories and experience what remains.

It’s a fantastic book for those who want to learn more about these ancient power centres and be inspired to visit them.

We spoke to Katherine about her first book ‘Queens of Jerusalem’ back in episode 238. She returned to tell us about the devastating earthquakes in Turkey in February 2023. Find out more about her at her website
