Back from a lecture by professor emeritus Matti Klinge

One more interesting lecture by professor emeritus Matti Klinge today. Much on and about the role of Constantinople in continuing of the Roman empire in medieval Europe. I have to say that I admire prof Klinge in that he still keeps lecturing at the university despite his age (he was born 1936) and many other activities. Got a book from him today called "Antikens Undergång, en essä om historieskrivningen som i själva verket speglar sin egen samtid" (written in 1985 by Hans Furuhagen). Think I´m going to write a short essay about the book next week.
