Amateur Video of Northen Portion of Anastasian Wall
This is an interesting amateur video along the northern portion of the wall. This is one of the sections that is better preserved. One can clearly see that this was not merely a wall made of rubble, but carefully constructed. It is amazing that it has survived for over a thousand years. However, it could be destroyed by development and treasure hunters in a matter of years. It is a relatively unknown treasure of the Late Roman period, but very important as an indicator of the separation and dissolution of the Western Roman Empire and the accession of the Eastern Roman Empire (referred to by historians as the Byzantine Empire) that would not collapse until 1453. If you are interested in donating to the completion of the documentary on the Anastasian Wall, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can direct you where to send donations. Other non-monetary donation such as editing, comment, promotion and screening opportunities would also be appreciated.
