Gibbon Chapter LVII: The Turks

Last chapter of the original fifth volume. The Turks emerge from Central Asia, spend some time in India, and then start to conquer the East and advance westwards into Asia Minor. Also my notes on Gibbon's geography, Anna Comnena, Jerusalem, the Druzes, the Georgians and the run-up to the Crusades.
