Byzantium – City of Gold, City of Faith

Byzantium was the seat of one of the longest surviving and most powerful empires of the western world. Originally the capital of the Roman Empire in the East, Byzantium remained, for a thousand years after the fall of Rome, a centre of religion and learning, and the site of many buildings and artefacts of legendary wealth and beauty. Werner Forman Archive has a large collection of content relating to this legendary civilisation.

Werner Forman Archive is the collection of globe-spanning photographer Werner Forman, who travelled for eight decades, imaging art, ancient civilisations, antiquities, architecture, landscape and people. http://www.werner-forman-archive.com/
