Mike Markowitz (2022)
Between 1096 and 1291, Europeans fought a series of wars against Muslims in the Middle East, carving out a series of "Crusader States" that issued coins. These coins, which are quite collectible today, reveal much about the fascinating history of a turbulent era that still influences current events. Presented as part of the Newman Portal Symposium, April 8-10, 2022. Speaker(s): Mike Markowitz.
