The last week of site and we find this huge feature looking like a lovely cobbled surface perhaps used for working, I think we only found a half of the surface, we only had time for some small test pits to see the extent and we found it went deeper. #archaeologylovers #archaeology #archaeologist #archaeologylife # #archaeological #historic #historylovers #history #roman #ukarchaeology #uk #ukhistory #romanarchaeology #excavation #excavator

32. Dawn Over Zero: The Story of the Atomic Bomb by William L. Laurence William Laurence was one of the few reporters given access to the development of the atom bomb. His reports and eye-witness accounts were kept top secret until after the war ended, then they were published in a series of articles in The New York Times. Fascinating. And a very quick read. $0.99 cents on Kindle. #bookstagram #bookgram #kindle #kindleunlimited #books #wwii #worldwarii #history #nonfiction

Happy Friday from Winnebago 🎉 here is a fun fact about the Iowan county Winnebago: the town Forest City is located in Winnebago county and is in fact where they manufacture the Winnebago motor homes 🏠. The county was founded in 1847 and is named after the Winnebago (also known as Ho-Chunk ) Native American tribe. . . . . . . #adoptdontshop #fosteringsaveslives #history #catsandhistory #fosterkitten #winnebago #adoptcats #adoptkittens #fluffykitten #orangekitten #colorado #catsofcolorado

Kolejny post na weekend! Kolejny od Piotra dzięki wielkie! a Wy, moi drodzy przeczytajcie! “W ostatnim kwartale 1918 r. wojna zbliżała się ku końcowi, a klęska państw centralnych była nieunikniona. Dla okupowanych, południowych terenów byłego Królestwa Polskiego najważniejsze były wówczas zdarzenia związane z rozpadem Cesarstwa Austro-Węgier. Na terenie gminy Kamienna przejmowanie władzy i mienia oraz rozbrajanie wojsk austriackich rozpoczęło się ok. 1 listopada 1918 r. Podobnie jak w innych miejscach na terenie powiatu główną rolę w tym procederze odgrywały oddziały POW wyłaniające się z zakonspirowani. W przypadku Kamiennej pomagała im też sformowana przez PPS Milicja Ludowa. Żołnierze okupanta, w przeważającej liczbie Czesi, stawiali początkowo niewielki opór i protestowali, lecz w końcu poddali się demobilizacji. Urzędnicy kolejowi poszli prędko ich śladem przekazując komisyjnie kontrolę nad stacją Skarżysko oraz jej mienie. Poprzez opór jaki stawiają polscy robotnicy kolejowi okupantowi nie udało się wywieźć ze stacji żadnych maszyn, urządzeń ani wagonów, jak zamierzano. Zarząd nad stacją objął na stanowisku komisarza J. Jankowski, zaś do komisji przydzielono po jednym przedstawicielu każdego z działów stacji. W odbijaniu osady fabrycznej większe zasługi miał komitet pod wodzą PPS, który starł się z oddziałami POW. Były to jednak tylko demonstracje siły próby szantażu. Ostatecznie wszystkie organizacje polityczne i wojskowe z okolicy działały w tym samym celu, mianowicie rozbrajania żołnierzy monarchii i rekwirowania majątku okupanta, a przy okazji przeprowadzania swoich akcji politycznych i administracyjnych.” A wy jeśli jeszcze nie obejrzeliście odcinka o Skarżysku to link macie w bio ; ) #skarzyskokamienna , #świętokrzyskie , #rejów , #Chęciny , #zamekkrólewski , #polska , #poland , #travel , #art , #royalcastle , #zamek , #weekend , #architecture , #trip , #traveltheworld , #Kielce , #Kielcecity , #historia , #history , #jeziora , # #drugawojnaswiatowa , #przemysł

1803 Draped Bust x 2!! Such a spectacular spot that we found in the middle of the woods, no amount of research could have predicted this site. In total 10 colonial coppers and one spanish silver piece were recovered ( among three people ) These are my finds from the first two visits. Colonial buttons, shoe buckle, two draped large cents ( one in Fine condition small date large fraction ) and a random V nickle.

"...I have been surrounded by love letters you two have built each other for years, encased in tents.." • Tsukiko, from The Night Circus by Eri Morgenstern • One of my dear friends gifted me her copy of The Night Circus last month. As she knows that I read it two years ago in its original language, she thought I might want to reread it in Turkish. And to be honest, I rarely reread books due to the fact that I'm such a slow reader. However, after thinking about how I enjoyed reading this extraordinarily magical book, I asked myself why don't I try myself and reread one of my favourites without caring about how fast I read? So yes, I will visit Le Cirque de Rêves soon my fellows. 🎪 • Thanks again @spacecriminal_ 🖤 ☆ e.

- In 1853, Baron Eugène Haussmann was commissioned by Napoleon to oversee the urban overhaul of Paris. What the Baron proposed was both ambitious and grand in scale. Haussmann proposed to replace the dense labyrinth of irregular mediaeval alleyways with a streamlined grid city featuring wide boulevards, which would loop the capital and intersect it. Paris’s urban regeneration was thus a huge commitment, but was also essential for a newly elected president - turned emperor in 1852 - who was adamant on leaving a mark on France’s capital. The commission was to avoid a repeat of the cholera epidemic, which claimed the lives of 20,000 people out of a population of half a million. The legacy of Haussmann, therefore, was in creating a city with prestige and wide open perspectives to capture intricate details from every angle. Hence, he arranged façades along horizontal planes, with balconies and cornices aligned in straight lines without any breaks, alcoves or projections. By attempting to achieve a rigid architectural homogeneity, Haussmann imposed limitation on building sizes, proportions and height. This principle was overturned when the Eiffel Tower was constructed during the Third Republic.

Из ремесленных лавок на подиумы: история бренда Bottega Veneta 👛 Мало какой бренд сравнится с @bottegaveneta по уровню моей безмерной любви к нему. Поэтому мне захотелось рассказать вам об истории этого итальянского чуда. Налейте себе бокальчик итальянского полусладкого, и поехали! В 60-х годах XX века в итальянском городе Виченца Микеле Таддей и Ренцо Дзенджаро изготавливали изделия из кожи. Делали они это так хорошо, что в начале пути фирма поставляла заказы для Джорджио Армани, а уже в 70-х заявила о себе как о самостоятельном бренде. Компания сделала ставку на качество материалов и сложную ручную работу — и не прогадала! Кожаные шедевры от Bottega Veneta быстро нашли место в гардеробах и сердцах сначала итальянской, а затем мировой знати. Бешеную популярность и статус люксовой марки Bottega Veneta (что переводится как «Венецианский магазинчик» ) получила за изобретение уникальнейшего метода плетения из кожи — «intrecciato», это до сих пор фирменный знак бренда. Вы точно его видели — ленты из кожи переплетаются, образуя ромбовидный узор. Ценители шикарных брендовых сумок наверняка слышали о модели Cabat (а может, у кого-то из вас она имеется в гардеробе ) — на ее изготовление уходит 2 дня ручной работы мастеров, и стоимость такого невероятного по красоте изделия доходит до $70 000! К началу 80-х в список постоянных клиентов премиум-бренда входили персоны топ-класса, например, Жаклин Кеннеди и императрица Ирана. Люксовые аксессуары светились в голливудских фильмах, а о самом бренде снял короткометражную картину великий Энди Уорхол — это ли не признак высочайшего уровня стиля и качества? В нулевых Bottega Veneta вошла в состав Gucci Group, но при этом не потеряла свою индивидуальность. Бренд люксовых аксессуаров уже был представлен на каждой неделе моды — все благодаря новому креативному директору марки Томасу Майеру, который поставил традиции компании во главу угла. Сегодня армия поклонников этой необыкновенной марки только пополняется, и я из этих стройных рядов точно никуда не уйду!

There was a time in my life when I used to believe that if you do good, goodness always visits you. In any way. In any form. When you care for someone, when you gift someone, no matter how much tiny or gigantic the gift is, the person who receives it will always remember you. A seed will be planted in his heart. A tiny flower of love will sprout up. Will grow happily. He would always remember the feel of the gift in his hands. Would trace his fingers on the ribbon which would be holding the bundle of joy in the box. There was a time when I used to believe that if you love someone with all your heart, your love would be reciprocated. That love could be with anyone. For your friends, family. Anyone. Believing world to be a kind, virtuous place, somehow we all stepped out from our childhood. But is the world kind? Is it the safe place? Will it scar you? Will it protect you? One day, I was out visiting some historical places. Went there with my friends. It was a pretty hot day. Could still remember the scorching gaze of sun. Making us crave for water. But even the water in our bottles was boiling. So we decided to wait till we find a food stall and buy something. Walking up the rocky path, I was a bit out of breath. Maybe because I didn't sleep well last night. Or maybe it was because I was hungry. Or tired. I was walking along with my friends when we saw the food stall. Our faces lit up. We went there and ordered some eatables. We devored it since we were famished. When we were done, my friend and I saw a young boy looking at us wishfully. He was hungry, so we asked the man to make something for him and we would pay. After the boy was served with the plate, we went away. At that time, the weather changed. It was cloudy and I wanted to take a shot of it. I asked my friends to wait and let me take a picture from the top of the minar. I went back, but what I saw disturbed me. The guy who owned the stall had a dog. After we went away, he snatched the plate from the little boy and gave it to his dog, while that boy had tears in his eyes and was silently screaming, 'That was mine.' We think if we are doing good, world will become a better place. Will it? . QOTD: How r u

An Egyptian archaeologist inspects a mummy in a limestone sarcophagus: I love how this image manages to be so close to the ideas many people in have about archaeology – and still one needs to understand that such a situation is EXTREMELY rare. We usually don’t just walk into tombs. Most people never find mummies. Well-preserved organics are scarce and an absolute windfall for archaeologists. What’s the first thing you think about when you hear “archaeology”? . Follow @ginocaspari for research and project updates. . . . .
