The Question: Which of these modern countries was never part of the Byzantine Empire?

Egypt
Syria
Great Britain
The Balkans

The Byzantine Empire held territory in modern-day Egypt, Syria, and the Balkans, but never extended into Britain (known then as Britannia) in the northwest. Based in modern-day Turkey, the empire initially spread into Egypt and Syria, and eventually expanded to include the Balkans nation, as far as the Danube River.

The correct answer is Great Britain.
