Nicholas presents the project in Istanbul

 

Nicholas de Lange presented the project to a large and enthusiastic audience at Limmud, a celebration of Jewish learning, in Istanbul. (For more on Limmud see http://www.limmudinternational.org/) He explained the aims and methods of the project, and demonstrated how the maps can be used to delve back into Byzantine Jewish history.

There was a lively question and answer session after the presentation.
