Nonetheless, the compiler, JJ Norwich, starts off the book with the take of the tourist, though the tourists are more of the Goethe type than Frances Mayes or Rick Steeves, certainly not your mothers' friends who last year went on a cruise after getting tired of Vegas and Branson. We're all tourists, if we're not Italians, right? It's not even a country you can marry into, whatever fantasies some people may have. 2 people found this helpful.

The people of the Indus Valley settled around the Indus River basin. The civilization lasted from 2600 BC to 1900 BC and was characterized by a technologically advanced urban culture. The people were skilled mathematicians, developing accurate means of measuring length, mass, and time. The Aborigines can be traced back to 75,000 years ago but became a genetically distinct group about 50,000 years ago.

John Julius Norwich, who has died aged 88.The great love of his life was Venice .

John Julius Norwich, who has died aged 88, called himself a writer and broadcaster. He was fascinated by the meeting of three great civilisations in the middle ages: Norman, Byzantine and Saracen, and of course I wanted to know more. There were no books about it in the London Library, so he decided that he must write one instead, and in 1964 he resigned from the Foreign Office. In the late 1980s Norwich set about a history of the Byzantine empire from its creation by Constantine the Great in the fourth century to its ignominious fall to the Turks 1,100 years later.
