Introduction to the Byzantine Empire, the schism between the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Crusades. Episodes featuring the Time Compass review the history of money and the invention of gunpowder. Students learn that Mehmed II was successful in his siege of Constantinople because the Turks had learned about gunpowder from the Chinese. They also learn how Mehmed’s success and the closure of trade routes to the East forced explorers, like Christopher Columbus, to seek alternative routes to the riches of the East.
