Two books I love are The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey, and The Maul and the Pear Tree by P. D. James. Both great reads in their own way.

Back in 1959 United Grain Growers grain elevator here in Thunder Bay (then Port Arthur) collapsed. The attached video describes the process of cleanup and rebuilding. It's 30 minutes long and was produced back in the sixties so the production isn't the greatest but it's fascinating to watch. (I thought about putting this post into Mysteries what with all the discussions on building pyramids an

I've posted this here because of the subject matter of the film. I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it and had great fun with the premise: Edward deVere did all the writing but because of family influences asked Ben Jonson to present his works as his own but Jonson couldn't. Shakespeare, an actor with the company took it upon himself to claim authorship when an enthusiastic audience clamoured

I was fascinated (and still am) with Blake when I was at university. His works I think touch something deep inside all of us with a Christian background - the visions of demons, hell, tormented souls, heroes humanised are manifest in his paintings as well as the the ethereal realm, higher beings and consciousness. I absolutely love it! Sometimes I'll look at one of his paintings and try to fig

Every time I see articles like this on Gobleki Tepe I start to fume! The explanations given for everything on the site are mere speculation! Deliberately covered?? Says who, and why? Pillars are to support a roof? Same questions! More advanced carving done 2000+ years earlier that less advanced carvings? Um - can you say earlier advanced ancient culture? What is with these archaeologists

Hi Jaap! Great to see you back here. I think you may be right - so far. I'm sure something will turn up that will be shown to be a form of writing. After all, the Egyptian hieroglyphs aren't just interesting pictures! The quipu I think were a way of keeping track of trade goods between the Inca and people who didn't speak Quechua (or whatever they did speak) . Don't need to speak t he lang

I think we were fed that myth years ago by archaeologists who couldn't recognise writing when they saw it. In the past few years we've seen a tremendous acceleration in the decipherment of the pictographs (so to speak) that show up all over Central and South America. Post Edited (01-Oct-11 13:10)

Yeah - well - history isn't necessarily the truth - and that's where the dichotomy lies.

Just delete History and change the title of Mysteries to History's Mysteries but then you have to add a Calculators' Board for posts with a lot of calculations in them (IMHO anyway)

I did not know about that flag - it seems somehow appropriate for Canada don't you think? A kind of ironic appropriateness perhaps? Oh, and BTW - having a history board really didn't make any sense to me since we discuss history in all its incarnations in Mysteries. The GHMB tends to be a little unorthodox and pure "History" isn't. (Besides, you are absolutely correct that it's wri

It strikes me that there is an singular amount of similarity between this and other myths/celebrations that strikes a chord. This for instance: "One version of the legend states that Houyi was an immortal and Chang'e was a beautiful young girl, working in the palace of the Jade Emperor (the Emperor of Heaven, 玉帝 pinyin:Yùdì) as an attendant to the Queen Mother of the

OK - so I'm watching The Medicis on Netflics and wondering just how much we really know about the family. I'm particularly interested by how the effects of Savanarola came to influence the future of Europe. His fundamentalism seems to be the aegis of the nastiness that permeated the conquest of the new world and corrupt the Renaiscence.

I agree. It was absolutely unbelievably squalid. I think what the researcher may be trying to get at is that more of the plague was spread pneumonically rather than through flea bites, which may bring into question traditional scientific thought. Living cheek to jowl as they did it's not surprising, as Carol says. But the rats were the root cause. There didn't have to be lot of them, just e

Of course WWII is history. So are the Kennedy deaths, Obama's election, and so on. As far as I'm concerned, after my university studies, anything that makes it into the books is capital H History. Everything else is historical.

I can remember very vividly reading "Manifesto" at university. Bear in mind I was 40 and "returning to learning", had had a fair amount of life experience and was examining socialism for the first time. I was just appalled! I could not believe that an entire revolution had occurred, a country (or countries) had been radically affected because of this teenage, privileged tw

Yep - didn't want to deal with the Pope so started the Anglican (English) church. Had exactly the same set up except the King was the head of the church instead of the Pope.

I`d be more inclined to listen to the fellow who says they`re a clever forgery. The idea of lead books is totally without precedent - and curious. They simply don`t look practical and that to me is an important aspect of anything that is discovered from the past.
