World History 201 Guidelines

Welcome to World History 201.

Find out if Caesar crossed the Rubicon or threw a dollar across it.

This is the forum where world history, in general, can be discussed. Since the WH201, like the other fora in the World History department, is not limited to participation along lines of theology, all may post here.

Please keep the Campus Decorum in mind when posting here--while 'belief' restrictions are not in place, common decency is.

The Tweb rules are in force . . . we're watching you.

    Oh I see. Thanks for letting me know that King :). I couldn't agree more with you.

    He left out the part about the Muslims stealing half of Christendoms land from them through war, and that's one of the main reasons why the Crusades were called. Though, he got most of the other stuff right.
