Constantinople map icon for Dimos' 1080 mod.



I tried to keep it simple.
Hagia Sophia still needs some texturing work.

When I finish it I'll move onto the Tower of London, which will be the last model for now.
Any info on how it looked around 1080?

Can I be picky and point out that Constantinople should only have the main (Theodosian) wall on one side? :P The huge Theodosian triple wall protected the inland side, with smaller walls & towers along the seafronts as those were easier to defend anyway. The crusader sack in 1204 came from the sea, the Turkish assault of 1453 finally breached the Theodosian wall (which was built in about 500 but still withstood six months of siege, twelve to one outnumbered, where the attackers had some of Europe's biggest cannon to date).

Apparently the White Tower, the innermost and earliest part of the Tower of London, was still under construction at this point (after all, the Normans had only been in power for fourteen years).

Yes you are absolutely right. I spent some time looking for historical maps, but in the end I just decided to keep it simple.

This icon is already too high poly for M&B map.
I just couldn't be bothered to make triple walls and divide the city in two parts.
But if you made a sketch I could definitely give it a try.
Finding info about Hagia Sophia's shape in 1080. was almost impossible, so I just made the main part of the building.

I'll have to skip the White Tower, then.  :-\

Byzantium is very much my thing, I'll try and sketch a map later if I get round to it; got the full works of Thietmar of Merseburg and Liudprand of Cremona to get through this evening though. (My supervised subject this term is Europe 900-1200, so bang on the time period  :P)

Are you on a gap year too or did you get an unconditional for some other reason? On this note I have an offer from Aberdeen.

Oh arr, too much cleverness. Have you applied to Oxford/Cambridge? Suppose you'd have to pay tuition fees for that.
AGHHHHHH?
Biomedicine for me, probably of the physiology flavour. Are you studying straight up pharm or biomedicine with the brackets and the pharmacology hiding in those funny little half circles?

I managed to break a piece of a wall with a round kick. Accidentally.

And it looks like I fractured a finger or two.  :P
