The Fall of the Roman Empire

Many believe that the Roman Empire ended in 476 A.D. However, this claim can be challenged because the capital of the Empire moved from Rome to the East in what is today Istanbul and it endured there until the 1450s and these people referred to themselves as Romans though we called them Byzantines. So Rome did not last for a thousand years but instead two thousand years. These are just some of the issues we will explore in this course.
