  1. I'd like to show this to my fourth graders except there is a comment about stopping in the cities for food, water, and prostitutes. Why do you have to ruin it by making it inappropriate? In another video John jokes about saying seamen (semen) which made the video inappropriate for public education. Glad I previewed it.

  2. I could have been interesting to mention that no trade goes one way and Rome(specifically) had something to offer to the east, namely Glass. Some have argued that it might just as well be called the "Glass Road" for the vast quantities of it going all the way to china. Also a knowledge protected in the west as to maintain an upper hand in trade.

  3. No test on history, doing a masters on ecology and training bicepts and tricepts at the gym while listening to this playlist on history! Well done John and team!
