Send by email

 The Rise of Islam and the Byzantine Empire were the topics during today's FAME presentations.  Justinian and Theodora were there, crusdaders fought, iconoclasts debated, and the rise of Islam brought the marvelous inventions from India and the Middle East to Spain and Northern Europe.  Again, many thanks to the parents who took the time to photograph, espcially Jason Stevens and Ruth Berkowitz.

 Japan continued FAME 2012 this afternoon.  Learning about clan warfare, bushido, the four-tier system, and the Mongol invasions were intertwined with original moving tales about Samurai honor and a village that needed to perfect the tea ceremony.  Many thanks to all the parents who photographed the event!  Enjoy the pictures!
