In 1204 crusaders sacked the city, then renamed Constantinople. For the next thousand years, the Byzantine Kings hid safely behind the massive walls of Constantinople. Then in 1453, with the Turkish Ottoman Empire encircling the city, Sultan Mehmet brought the newest technology of the 15th century, the cannon, and finally brought down the walls of the world's most impregnable fortress. This 24 minute video reviews the details of this city and the battle. The main video starts at the two minute mark.

Music of Ancient Greece
From awesomestories.com
Michael Levy plays ancient Greek melodies on his lyre.  This is a short rendition of one of the precious few fragments of surviving ancient Greek music! This fragment of melody was preserved in ancient Byzantine manuscripts (Conspectus codicum:
V. Venetus Marcianus appl. cl. VI, saec. XIII-XIV
N. Neapolitanus graecus III. C4, saec. XV
F. Florentius Ricc. 41, saec. XVI), in the unambiguous alphabetical musical notation used in ancient Greece, & the melodic fragment is catalogued as "Anonymous, Bellermann 97-104".

It is played here, on a lyre closely resembling the ancient Greek Kithara; the larger wooden lyre favoured by the professional musicians of ancient Greece(the lyre is in fact, a replica of a Jewish Temple lyre, depicted on a Jewish coin from 135CE - it is almost identical to the Kithara).

It is in the ancient Greek "Hypolydian" mode; the equivalent intervals as heard on the scale from F-F on the white notes of the piano.

The History of the Mongol Empire
From watchmojo.com, produced by WatchMojo
This 2:50 video explains how Genghis Khan was made ruler of all Mongols in 1206, and his rise to power. Their story is often
described as violent, as the Mongols overpowered and outwitted their
enemies. Within one century, the Mongols had become one of history’s greatest empires and at its peak, controlled roughly 22 per cent of the world’s total land area. As with most world powers, the empire eventually crumbled, but the lasting consequences of this empire’s impact can still be seen today in terms of the start of a mail system. Good overview.

The Roman Empire. Or Republic. Or...Which Was It?: Crash Course World History #10
From YouTube, produced by crashcourse
John Green explores exactly when Rome went from being the Roman Republic to the Roman Empire. Here's a hint: it had something to do with Julius Caesar, but maybe less than you think. Find out how Caesar came to rule the empire, what led to him getting stabbed 23 times on the floor of the senate, and what happened in the scramble for power after his assassination. John covers Rome's transition from city-state to dominant force in the Mediterranean in less than 12 minutes. The senate, the people, Rome, the Cesarean section, the Julian calendar and our old friend Pompey all make appearances, but NOT the Caesar Salad, as Julius had nothing to do with it.(12:26)
