Outside Agitator (they/them)

Interesting how many Normans are in Africa. Wonder what it means for European history to have the strongest empire's heartlands outside of Europe?
Good point. Europe's whole centre of gravity has shifted downwards massively. Would be interesting to imagine the Normano–Berber kingdoms moving into the first age of colonialism, although not so savoury to dwell upon the possible logistical implications of controlling West Africa already…
Who knows? that little Norman beach along the Red Sea by Sinai might even negate the need to go looking for convenient new routes to the Indies any time soon…
