Description
This class will cover clothing, education, religion and life of the Khazars who lived in the region of the Khazar Sea, now called the Caspian.  Noted for the high level of education, tolerance of all faiths, elected government, arts, trade, and fierceness in battle.  The Khazars were a bulwark to the flow of Islam into Europe and slowed the movement of the Rus (Vikings) into the south.  Will cover the period from 750-1100AD.
