Re: Large Shipwreck Found Off Greece

Modern method constructed pleasure boats have done well.
The current top of the line ones rival super carriers in size.
But built in Baltic ports I belive.

Re: Large Shipwreck Found Off Greece

Interesting 110 feet is a good sized ship Very much a deep water sailing vessel. Too big to maneuver quickly in coastal shallows as a "always in sight of land" ship. Most likely ran aground in such a site. I too would like to see a Black Sea find like this But I doubt the need for a ship this size o...

Egyptomania

One of the classic examples of this fashion fad was Col. Powers naming of various sites he saw in the Grand Canyon with Egyptian names.

He knew it would get him headlines.

We suffer from the side effects of those names to this day.

Re: Wroxeter pendants reinterpreted

Another example of the "male centric" point of view so long accepted in the histories studies. If I remember correctly,it was a female student that noticed that one of the "Venus" statuettes had braided hair. An indication of personal appearance concern in early humans. I, for one, welcome the added...

Re:Pre GrecRoman Egypt

Wasn’t there an Egypt to sub Sahara, salt for gold, camel train culture that pre-dated the Greco Roman era?
Very little genetic ties but still slavery contact at least.

Re: Huh?

Sorry to be the one to beak this news
But the "popular media" only prints what sells
That means a subject must have a lot of popular interest.

This sounds more like a thesis subject.

Re: CBS video

Typical CBS video Show one thing while talking about another. (Aren’t they the ones that put a blasting cap in a GM pick up truck to show how easy they caught fire?) In this case it is talk about, and blame the gun, when the difference is in the ammunition. The Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) bullet, the pa...

Re: Waterloo limbs

I am pretty sure that is why the M-16 has a 3 shot position on the fire control.
The FMJ .223 cartridge is less than lethal.

Re: Waterloo limbs

One of the reasons for the large number of wounded vets from the relatively small number of men (Napoleon’s Russian invasion force was 600,000 men) in the recent wars in Asia and the Mid-East has been the pushing of wounded care to the battle front. Fast modern medicine has made the number what had ...
