By place

Byzantine Empire

  • Arab–Byzantine War: Emperor Heraclius assembles a large army (100,000 men) consisting of contingents of Byzantines, Slavs, Franks, Georgians, Armenians, and Christian Arabs.[1]He establishes a base at Yaqusah (near Gadara), close to the edge of the Golan Heights, protecting the vital main road from Egypt to Damascus. The base is protected by deep valleys and precipitous cliffs, well supplied with water and grazing.[2]
  • Summer – Heraclius summons a church assembly at Antioch and scrutinises the situation. He accepts the argument that Byzantine disobedience to God is to blame for the Christian disaster in Syria. Heraclius leaves for Constantinople with the words, ‘Peace be with you Syria — what a beautiful land you will be for your enemy’.[3]

600 (number)

600 (six hundred) is the natural number following 599 and preceding 601.

Area code 618

Area code 618 is the telephone area code serving southern Illinois, including the cities of Carbondale and Cairo. 618 also serves most of the Metro East region (the east side of the St. Louis area), including Alton, Belleville, East St. Louis, and Edwardsville. (The northern area of Metro East is in area code 217.)

618 was among the original North American area codes created in 1947. In 1954, most of Metro East switched from 217 to 618.

618 is the only one of Illinois' four original area codes never to have been split or overlaid. Under current projections, however, 618 is expected to "exhaust" by 2024. The supply of numbers is further limited because much of 618 is part of the St. Louis LATA; some exchanges in Missouri's 314 and 636 are not available as "618-nxx" numbers.

Periodic proposals have been made for relief of the 618 area code. The most recent proposal has 618 overlaid with the unactivated 730.

Area code 636

Area code 636 serves east-central Missouri, mainly the metro area of St. Louis excluding the city of St. Louis and most of St. Louis County. Area code 636 includes parts of the community of Chesterfield, Fenton, and all of Washington, Union, De Soto, Troy, St. Charles, Jefferson, and Warren counties. Area code 314, now assigned to St. Louis and some suburbs, formerly extended to Washington and St. Francois counties.

Before 1996, 314 covered the entire eastern half of Missouri. In 1996, most of the old 314 territory outside of the St. Louis area became area code 573. This was intended as a long-term solution, but within two years 314 was almost out of numbers again due to the proliferation of cell phones, pagers and fax machines. The supply of numbers was further limited because the St. Louis LATA spills into much of southern Illinois, meaning several numbers that were part of area code 618 across the border in Illinois weren't available. As a result, most of St. Louis' outer-ring suburbs were switched to area code 636 on May 22, 1999. A permissive dialing period was allowed in which customers could still complete calls using 314.

Several of these highways have their own articles; those highways are summarized here and a link is provided to the main article. This list does not include highways where at least one highway of that number is at least one mile in length. All highways at least one mile in length have their own article. The highways shorter than one mile with the same number are covered in the main article for the highway.

Siege of Jerusalem (636–637)

The Siege of Jerusalem was part of a military conflict which took place in the year 637 between the Byzantine Empire and the Rashidun Caliphate. It began when the Rashidun army, under the command of Abu Ubaidah, besieged Jerusalem in November 636. After six months, the Patriarch Sophronius agreed to surrender, on condition that he submit only to the Caliph. In April 637, Caliph Umar traveled to Jerusalem in person to receive the submission of the city. The Patriarch thus surrendered to him.

In 613, the Jewish revolt against the Byzantine Heraclius culminated with the conquest of Jerusalem in 614 by Persian and Jewish forces and establishment of Jewish autonomy. The revolt ended with the departure of the Persians and also ended 15 years of Jewish autonomy.

The Muslim conquest of the city solidified the Arab control over Palestine, control which would not again be threatened until the First Crusade in the late 11th century.

Varangian runestones

The Varangian runestones are runestones in Scandinavia that talk of eastward voyages such as the Gardarike runestones, Greece Runestones, Italy Runestones, and inscriptions left by the Varangian Guard. Other runestones that deal with Varangian expeditions include the Serkland Runestones (dealing with expeditions to the Middle East) and the Ingvar Runestones (erected in honor or memory of those who travelled to the Caspian Sea with Ingvar the Far-Travelled). There is also a separate article for the Baltic expeditions runestones.

In addition, there were also voyages to Western Europe mentioned on runestones that are treated in the articles Viking Runestones, England Runestones and Hakon Jarl Runestones.

Most of the runestones were raised during the Christianization of the 11th century when the making of runestones was fashionable, but notably the Kälvesten Runestone Ög 8 was made in the 9th century when the Varangians played a central role in what would become Russia and Ukraine. This vast area was a rich source of pelts, hides and people, and it was an important component in the contemporary Swedish economy.

All of the stones were engraved in Old Norse with the Younger Futhark.
