Byzantium 330-1453

This week, I managed to visit the Royal Academy in central London see the exhibition on Byzantium 330-1453 which opened on 25 October 2008 and runs until 22 March 2009.
This is a fabulous exhibition which spans a period of over 1,000 years from 330, when the Emperor Constantine consecrated his new capital, to 1453, when the city fell to the Ottoman Turks. The exhibition features some 340 objects from over 100 lending institutions, many never before seen in public, let alone in Britain.
