In 1822, the French Egyptology succeeded in deciphering the hieroglyphics. On a stone found by the French officer in The Rosette (Nile delta, Egypt), there was a Greek inscription in the lower part, while there were two texts with Egyptian characters over it. The comparison between the Greek text and the Egyptian characters eventually led to the decipherable of the hieroglyphics.
The deciphering of the hieroglyphics
The deciphering of the hieroglyphs goes back to the French Egyptology (1790-1832) in 1822.
After a long time of experimentation, he succeeded in deciphering the Egyptian signs with the help of the stone of Rosetta, also a stone of the rosette. Continue reading “What is the Rosette Stone?”
With the emergence and development of the science of history, humanity overcame early mythical and religious ideas about its development in a long and complicated process. In their place came more and more secure knowledge. This process of knowledge will continue as long as humanity exists.
The transition to actual historical science took place only at the beginning of the 19th century. That did not happen unprepared. More or less significant progress in the direction of a scientific study of history has existed since ancient times at every stage of historical development. There were remarkable approaches to a source-critical approach, to the emergence of individual historical auxiliary sciences as well as to the expression of genres in the depiction of history.

Depiction of a Roman legionary end of 3rd century
In the 70s of the 3rd century BC, Rome had reached dominance on the Italian peninsula. From all cities and peoples belonged as allies to the Roman Empire. The republic was stable, powerful and ambitious. On the opposite side of the Mediterranean, Carthage, not much older than Rome itself, had a position as a naval and trading power. Many colonies of Carthage moved along the Mediterranean coasts of Sicily, Spain, North Africa and Sardinia. His fleets ruled the western Mediterranean unchallenged. Carthage was satisfied with its extent; in contrast to Rome, it pursued no major expansive tendencies, but wanted to secure and expand its previous position. In Sicily, however, Hero had seized power over the great city of Syracuse and sought to strengthen the city’s power and develop it into a regional factor. It should be the ambitions of this Hero that tore Rome and Carthage into the longest coherent war of antiquity. Continue reading “The First Punic War – Rome’s rise to world power”
During the roadworks between the Saxon-Anhalt and the villages of Theissen and Nonnewitz, archaeologists have excavated the remains of a Slavic settlement as well as graves from the late Neolithic period from 2,800 to 2,200 BC. Discovered. The manner in which a man was buried might indicate that his erstwhile contemporaries were trying to prevent the dead from haunting them as a so-called Revenant, and thus as a preform of the vampire.
As an outstanding find, the press release of the State Office for Preservation and Archeology Saxony-Anhalt – State Museum of Prehistory describes the probably Neolithic stool of a man lying supine in a settlement pit, with his head to the northwest, the view to the east, angled legs and originally bound arms .

This scientific illustration shows 7.2 million years ago in a dusty savannah landscape in the Athenian Basin. The southeast over the plane of Athens covered by a red cloud covered with Sahara dust; in the background the Hymettos mountains and the Lykabettos mountain.
Germany- Not in Africa, but in the Balkans, scientists have found evidence of a 7.2-million-year-old Vormenschen-type and shake the previous doctrine on Africa as a so-called cradle of humanity and suspect that at the same time The lines of development of chimpanzees and humans here may have separated several hundred thousand years earlier than previously thought.
Like the team from the Senckenberg Center for Human Evolution and Palaeoenvironment at the University of Nikolai Spassov from the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences in two simultaneously published publications in the journal Plos One, they examined two fossil finds of the Graecopithecus frey bergi with the most modern methods and came to the conclusion that this is a previously unknown species.

The story starts with old empirical knowledge, of course with so many myths. But they are often known to have a true core. However, the current state of science in such discussions really does not decide whether a phenomenon is real or not. Unfortunately, many researchers today still will often adopt a negative attitude, as long as comprehensible explanations are missing – missing in the sense of: not yet found.
Especially with the moon, there is no consensus as to whether and to what extent it has real effects on life. And especially with the moon, it can be stated that skepticism usually results from a lack of knowledge about triggering factors and contexts. No wonder, the research is still in its infancy. What do you want to expect!
