We are to believe that for 10 years, thousands of people (and many Gods) were involved in various combat related activities over a... woman. Could it be that the event we know as the Trojan War was fought over a piece of "pre-flood" ancient technology other than over a woman? As we know, history is written by victors. Losers are normally not allowed to contribute. What if the reasons for this (highly questionable by some) war were totally...

Question | Year 2030: what are they hiding?

World civilization cycles are one of the topics that I've been pondering on for a while now. Industrial revolutions appear to be convenient enough for re-introducing older technologies into the newly developing, post-apocalypse spins of the world civilization. From this perspective, the infatuation of the elites (imho, some of them do know what's up) with "2030" could be rather interesting. Additionally, we are obviously dealing with certain...

Lake Parime is a legendary lake located in South America. It was reputedly the location of the fabled city of El Dorado, also known as Manoa, much sought-after by European explorers. Repeated attempts to find the lake failed to confirm its existence, and it was dismissed as a myth along with the city. The search for Lake Parime led explorers to map the rivers and other features of southern Venezuela, northern Brazil, and southwestern Guyana...

Built in 1891, the short-lived Broadway Cable Railroad ran north along Broadway, from Bowling Green at the southern end of Manhattan, uptown to 36th Street. This early form of mass transit operated by means of two giant cables (powered by centrally positioned steam engines), which ran just below street level, pulling the cable cars along the track at a steady 30 miles per hour. Unfortunately, the underground cables-and hence the trains...

This building is located very close to my house. It's right along the Niagara River on Niagara Street, which is a very historic area in Buffalo. The destruction of the Buffalo "community" and Black Rock in the War of 1812 allegedly occurred all along this stretch. The YouTube channel Bushwhacking History in Buffalo has some detail on this stretch, though I'm not completely familiar with all his content. Not enough hours in the day...

The Vieux-Port Tunnel is located in downtown Marseille near the entrance to the city's former commercial port, now a marina. It connects the north and south shores of the port and in fact the north and south districts of the city.

52 BC Battle of Alesia: where and when did it happen?

For Caesar, Alesia was an enormous personal success, both militarily and politically. The senate declared 20 days of thanksgiving for this victory but, due to political reasons, refused Caesar the honor of celebrating a triumphal parade, the peak of any general's career. Political tension increased, and two years later, in 49 BC, Caesar crossed the Rubicon, precipitating the Roman Civil War of 49–45 BC, which he won. After having been...

Without historical individuals and without real chronology we have no history. Unfortunately, this is exactly what we have in my opinion - no history. Instead of the real history we have an intertwined web of fictitious story lines. Years of polishing turned these story lines into our current narrative. The end result is still the same, for no good fiction will ever make up for the true history. Winston Churchill allegedly said "A nation that...

The fire destroyed 10-12,000 buildings, displacing 2000 families, or about 12,000 people. Property values skyrocketed, and a construction boom started on April 14, only 4 days after the fire. By June 12, while many streets were still blocked with fire debris, 500 new buildings were either completed or in progress. Fine buildings of brick or stone replaced the destroyed wooden tenements. Pittsburgh came back from the great fire bigger and...

Time is the continued sequence of existence and events that occurs in an apparently irreversible succession from the past, through the present, into the future. It is a component quantity of various measurements used to sequence events, to compare the duration of events or the intervals between them, and to quantify rates of change of quantities in material reality or in the conscious experience.

The statue commemorates Prince Dmitry Pozharsky and Kuzma Minin, who gathered an all-Russian volunteer army and expelled the forces of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth under the command of King Sigismund III of Poland from Moscow, thus putting an end to the Time of Troubles in 1612.

The first known reference to Moscow dates from 1147 AD as a meeting place of Yuri Dolgoruky and Sviatoslav Olgovich. At the time it was a minor town on the western border of Vladimir-Suzdal Principality. The chronicle says, "Come, my brother, to Moskov". In 1156 AD, Knyaz Yury Dolgoruky fortified the town with a timber fence and a moat. When the Grand Duchy of Moscow evolved into the Tsardom of Russia, Moscow still remained as the political...
