Islamic Empires, with links from the European, African and Asian forums, assuming a subforum system.
Have you even been reading my posts?

Besides, Culture is NOT absolute, the islamic/african influence did not magicly stop at Egypts borders, it spread all over Northern Africa and south in to Sudan and Kenya and beyond.
Africa works for Egypt, throughout all time, its not like the rest of the continent is culturaly homogeneous.

Do we really need a separate board for Ancient Iran? I mean, it wasn't *that* different from other Ancient civilisations, we can merge it with the Egypto-Mesopotamian board.

Since many people want different boards for the current American, Indian, SE Asian and African History board, perhpas it's an idea to creata a South Asian Board (for Persia, India and perhaps SE Asia)

Maybe we should wait and see if a soon to be upgrade will allow for subforums, then we can do a serious overhaul.

Agreed. Interesting suggestions over here, though!
