BOOK REVIEW: Spies, Sadists, and Sorcerers: The History You Weren’t Taught in School

Excellent summary of several assumed bits of horrendously ignorant and wrong views of history and famous historical characters like Richard the Lionheart (1157-1199). That King is considered an example of "Englishness", avoided England like the plague and didn't speak ANY ENGLISH!  :o  He was a Frenchman that said "he would have sold London if he had found a buyer". 


Feast your eyes on REAL historical facts like the fact that the Middle Ages were NOT "dark" and the Medieval period was NOT "uncivilized" compared to life before the fall of the Roman Empire.

Stop believing all that silly stuff you were taught by Hollywood! Most of it is not even close to the actual history and the actual doings of the influential people of that time.

And, by the way, the English were every bit as brutal as the Vikings. And the Vikings, on the whole, were far more literate than the English! And the Vikings had soap and combs too! They were not the unkempt folk the English tried to make them out to be.

The hyped up happy talk Anglo Saxonized view of history is mostly propaganda.

Why do People Keep Things (including Manuscripts)? 

JULY 29, 2017 BY MEDIEVALISTS.NET

Paper by Daniel Lord Smail

Given as part of the Mellon Sawyer seminar series on April 14, 2017



Abstract
: For much of the last century, scholars in the human sciences have been preoccupied with the movement of objects in human societies. But people also invest great energy and imagination in the act of removing things from networks of exchange. A deep historical perspective on storing, keeping, collecting, and hoarding suggests that the habits and the materialities of storage are both enabled and disabled by a changing array of human institutions and material forms.

In addition, different kinds of things are stored or cached in different ways, depending on their characteristics. Written documents, including books and manuscripts, are especially prominent among the ranks of storable things. In this paper, I will describe the broad outlines of a deep history of storage, with special reference to habits for storing and using manuscripts and legal acts among the laity of later medieval Europe

America Before Columbus (Full Documentary)

Published on Feb 6, 2016

History books traditionally depict the pre-Columbus Americas as a pristine wilderness where small native villages lived in harmony with nature. But scientific evidence tells a very different story: When Columbus stepped ashore in 1492, millions of people were already living there. America wasn't exactly a New World, but a very old one whose inhabitants had built a vast infrastructure of cities, orchards, canals and causeways.

Native American Three Sisters Growing Method

The English brought honeybees to the Americas for honey, but the bees pollinated orchards along the East Coast. Thanks to the feral honeybees, many of the plants the Europeans brought, like apples and peaches, proliferated. Some 12,000 years ago, North American mammoths, ancient horses, and other large mammals vanished. The first horses in America since the Pleistocene era arrived with Columbus in 1493.

Settlers in the Americas told of rivers that had more fish than water. The South American potato helped spark a population explosion in Europe. In 1491, the Americas had few domesticated animals, and used the llama as their beast of burden.

In 1491, more people lived in the Americas than in Europe. The first conquistadors were sailors and adventurers. In 1492, the Americas were not a pristine wilderness but a crowded and managed landscape. The now barren Chaco Canyon was once covered with vegetation. Along with crops like wheat, weeds like dandelion were brought to America by Europeans.

It’s believed that the domestication of the turkey began in pre-Columbian Mexico, and did not exist in Europe in 1491. By 1500, European settlers and their plants and animals had altered much of the Americas’ landscape. While beans, potatoes, and maize from the Americas became major crops in continental Europe.

All the many varieties of Potatoes origniated from South and Central American Native American Agriculture.

The True Story Of Moby Dick (Full Documentary)


ajvaughan3 Documentary Films

Published on Mar 3, 2016

Essex was an American whaler from Nantucket, Massachusetts, launched in 1799. While under the command of Captain George Pollard, Jr., in 1820 a sperm whale attacked and sank her. The sinking stranded the twenty-man crew in the southern Pacific Ocean with little food and water. During the 95 days that the survivors were at sea, they ate the bodies of five crewmen who had died. When that was insufficient, members of the crew drew lots to determine who they would sacrifice so that the others could live. A total of seven crew members were cannibalized before the eight survivors were rescued. First mate Owen Chase and cabin boy Thomas Nickerson wrote accounts of their ordeal; these accounts inspired Herman Melville to write his famous 1851 novel Moby-Dick.

The true story of the surviving sailors whose whaling ship was destroyed by a sperm whale.
