Via American Digest, I think. (Can’t find the link now.)

    Thanks, lovely. I found the choppy history a little confusing, though. It said that they were mostly Christian, and then the Crusaders came in the 11th century and conquered them. Isn’t there a missing piece, perhaps the same piece that made the natives up and leave…?
