The Travels of Johann Schiltberger 4: The Journey Home and Other Things

This is the 4th and final episode in my little series on Johann Schiltberger. Our wandering friend has come a long way and been through a great deal, but here he is, on the edge of making it back to Bavaria. In this episode, we’ll look at how things fall out after the death of Timur, we’ll see where that leaves Schiltberger, and we’ll trace his path towards home. There will also be time for some of the many interesting things that come up in his book but don’t necessarily fit into his personal story: espionage in Alexandria, Johann’s guide to the Asian Steppe, what he thinks of Armenian religion, etc. Thanks for listening!
