🔘The Chinchorro culture🔘 ⚫Chinchorro culture was a preceramic culture that lasted from 7,000 to 1,500 BC. ⚫The people forming the Chinchorro culture were fishermen inhabiting northern Chile and southern Peru. ⚫The Chinchorro culture is named after Chinchorro Beach , near Arica, Chile, where the first mummies were discovered. ⚫The Chinchorro were famous for their detailed mummification and funerary practices. ⚫Chinchorro mummies are the oldest examples of artificially mummified human remains they having been buried up to two thousand years before the Egyptian mummies. ⚫The Chinchorro were expert fishermen, they developed an extensive and sophisticated fishing tools such as fishing hooks made of shells and cactuses, and stone weights for nets made of mesh fabrics. ⚫They became skilled weavers of baskets and mats. ⚫Interestingly a Chinchorro male mummy bears the earliest tattoo found in the Americas. ⚫He has a mustache-like dotted line tattooed above his upper lip; the tattoo dates to c. 2300 BC.

One more from this world wonder just so you can appreaciate the scale of the travertine (a sedimentary rock deposited by mineral water from the hot springs ) terraces and pools. Even though mostly empty now, they are still a sight to see. Once can only imagine how magnificent they looked in their full glory days. ***** #denizli #hierapolis #pamukkale #traventerler #ancient #ancientcity #nature #wanderlust #instaturkey #pamukkaletravertenleri #cottoncastle #cottoncastleturkey #gltlove #citizenfemme #ladiesgoneglobal #dametraveler #turkeytravel #pamukkaletravel #hotsprings #unescoworldheritagesite #visitturkey #travelturkey #discoverturkey #visit_turkey #travelbucketlist #wanderlusters #athomeintheworld #bestdestinations #forbestravelguide #bestdestinations

This photo tells 1,000 words - A vast contrast between young and old, our beautiful mother earth and mother to be. Katie, our unborn daughter Cayla, and the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Tree are alive and well, but separated by millennia. I contemplate the depth of this image, the wisdom of the tree and the perfection of the biology that is my wife. Life is mysterious, magical and miraculous. We will bring Cayla here again. ❤️ @devinekatelyn #ancientbristleconepineforest #bristleconepine #ancient #wisdom #motherearth #perfection

Day: 28 Tree: Night flowering jasmine/ Parijat (पारिजात ) . In the Indian culture, there are various trees associated with gods. So whenever we go to a temple we happen to unknowingly get all the goodness these particular trees offer. And a tree does affect one’s health and life. One such is Parijat tree. It is said that if young girls and boys who have been completely eating vegetarian food for at least 15 days, first wash their hands with ash (the ultimate cleanser ), then gently pluck these leaves and meditate holding them in their hands for around 1-2 hours, will be guided to make right decisions in their lives. Even when it comes to finding a good life partner. I know that it is a little hard to believe, but our ancestors were very cool and actually believed in letting youngsters make their own life. . #inktober #inktober2020 #art #painting #watercolor #watercolourpainting #india #ancient #ayurveda #ayurvedicmedicine #medicinalherbs #leaves #parijat #parijatak #lifestyle #zerowastehome #sustainableliving #sustainability #life #basic #tropical #flowers #ink #camlin #indianartist #indianart #nature #naturepainting #paint #sketching

. جام شهر سوخته ساخته شده از چوب گردو و راش و سوخته نگاری در میان یافته های کوچک و بزرگ باستان شناسان در وسعت ۱۵۱ هکتاری «شهر سوخته» ، سفالینه ای با نقش بز که در پنج حرکت به سمت درختی می جهد و برگهای آن را می خورد ، نظر کارشناسان را بیش از سایر آثار مکشوفه به خود جلب کرده و به عنوان نخستین پویا نمایی جهان مطرح شده است . قدمت این اثر باشکوه به هزاره ی سوم پیش از میلاد بر می گردد. پ.ن : برخی معتقدند موارد منقوش بر این سفالینه بیان گر یک داستان زیبای باستانی ایرانی با نام «درخت آسوریک» است. #شهر_سوخته #اولین_انیمیشن_جهان #زابل #انیمیشن #سفالینه #سفال_شهر_سوخته #هزاره_سوم_پیش_از_میلاد #درخت_آسوریک #سارا_بنماران #سارابنماران_هستم #چوبی #پویانمایی #پویا_نمایی #wooden #shahr_i_sokhta #iran #ancient #dish #ancientdish #firstanimation #first_animation #sara_benmaran #im_sarabenmaran #wooden_bowl #woodturning #wood #woodart #readyforyourorders

Who killed Philip II? What was their motive? - I think that Pausanias could not have acted alone, I might buy into Olympias being the culprit, she had the most to gain from Philips death. By all accounts she hated her husband and recognized that Alexander was the key to her safety and comfort in the world. By removing Philip she would have secured her status behind the young and brilliant Alexander who she clearly loved. - Source(s ): Alexander The Great by Phillip Freeman, Wiki. - #history #america #politics #military #rome #hamilton #culture #philosophy #worldwar2 #memes #facts #museum #facts #college #funfacts #ancient #war #artwork #humanities #historylesson #historyfacts #historybuff #historymemes #civilwar #books #washington #historical #pirates #vikings #learning #funfact

𝐌𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐢 𝐓𝐞𝐫𝐦𝐞 𝐢𝐬 𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐨𝐧𝐥𝐲 𝟑 𝐭𝐨𝐰𝐧𝐬 𝐢𝐧 𝐓𝐮𝐬𝐜𝐚𝐧𝐲 𝐭𝐨 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐚 𝐟𝐮𝐧𝐢𝐜𝐮𝐥𝐚𝐫 🚂 🌄(the other two are Certaldo and Montenero ). But Montecatini's one is the most #ancient °°° 𝐒𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐡𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐲: inaugurated on 4 June 1898 and conceived to connect the #spa town to its historic center, set atop of a hill with stunning view of the Val di Nievole Valley, the funicular really resembles the old steam trains; In fact, the two picturesque and original red wagons, funnily named 'Gigio' and 'Gigia', which compose the installation were initially powered by a massive steam boiler, consequently replaced by a powerful electric engine in 1921. The facility suffered damage during World War II bombings, but it could soon be repaired and reopened to tourists, retaining still today its original structure. 🚞🚞🕒 A single route, one way, takes 8 minutes from the main station, located in Via Armando Diaz, close to the Terme Park, to the upper station (and vice versa ). The funicular is opened seasonally providing daily service (it runs every half an hour from 9.30 am till midnight ) from March/April till October 31st (covid permitting ). It's an useful and comfortable way to get to the town's old part avoiding any trouble in finding a parking space 🚙🚙 #igtuscany #visituscany #valdinievole #toscanabella #tourismitaly #florencelove #igertuscany #dreamed #exploreit #traveller #greentuscany #italiangirl #happy #naturegram #naturaleza 🍃 #visitaitalia #europa #havefunn #artandculture

TODAY WAS A GOOD DAY 😃 I finally got my actual hands on the Heumen Iron Age wagon burial! A squashed bronze vessel , a completely decked out chariot with fabulous horse tack 🐴 and of course a dagger/mini sword 🗡are all being lovingly restored by @stichtingrestaura - and I GET TO STUDY THEM 🥰 This grave was unfortunately robbed out by some people who were up to no good, but thankfully it is now in the possession of the province and will end up in a museum (because it really does belong in one! ) Over the next year I will be studying it and a number of comparable wagon burials from the La Tène period together with scholars of the @vuamsterdam , @cultureelerfgoed , @galloromeinsmuseum and @museumhetvalkhof . I can’t wait to dive into this material!

At the Crossroads of Life and Death. As Samhain approaches, we are reminded of the fork in our road- we come now to the Great Crossroads. On one side there is Life, and the other, Death. Our ancient Celtic ancestors believed that Samhain was the time when all manner of spirits, ghosts, and supernatural creatures walked the Earth. The liminal places of our world, like crossroads, graves, and even the edge of property lines were avoided, as they are places that attract the spirits of the dead. It was common to disguise oneself in ghoulish garb, the scarier the better, to ward off evil spirits. This is where our long tradition of Halloween costumes begins. Costumes began as a way of protecting oneself from supernatural harm. Samhain was also the time to honor the memory of lost loved ones, beloved ancestors, and the spirits of benevolent beings. Ancestral worship is incredibly common all over the world, and the British Isles and Celtic territories of ancient Europe are no exception, but especially on Samhain night. It is a time to honor the ones we’ve lost. Grieve, mourn, and weep, but remember fondly, with joy, love, and gratitude. It was common to leave offerings for deceased family members and pray to them for guidance and abundance for the coming year. The happier the ancestor, the more fertile the land and its people. While the same can be said for any deity that was worshiped at the time, Samhain marks a special and specific time of the year where emphasis was placed on the remembrance of human spirits. But lest we forget: the Darkness is coming. We walk a fine line, a single thread pulled taut, between Life and Death. What might happen if we dip ever so slightly off that edge?
