The Rise of the Seljuk Turks
Lecture no. 22 from the course: The Barbarian Empires of the Steppes
Taught by Professor Kenneth W. Harl | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses
Elaborate on implications of the previous two lectures, including the rise of a slave trade, as you trace a series of Turkish migrations that lead to new powers on the steppes. Focus on three states: the Karakhanids, the sultans of Ghazni, and the Seljuk Turks, who represent the greatest of these new political organizations.
