Disaster came to the great city under the reign of the emperor Tiberius, when in 17 AD, Sardis was destroyed by an earthquake, but it was rebuilt with the help of ten million sesterces from the Emperor and exempted from paying taxes for five years. It was one of the great cities of western Asia Minor until the later Byzantine period. Where did ~20 feet of dirt come from?

Victory Columns were Airship Mooring Masts?

A mooring mast, or mooring tower, is a structure designed to allow for the docking of an airship outside of an airship hangar or similar structure. More specifically, a mooring mast is a mast or tower that contains a fitting on its top that allows for the bow of the airship to attach its mooring line to the structure. When it is not necessary or convenient to put an airship into its hangar between flights, airships can be moored on the...

The bridge was dismantled in 1967 and relocated to Arizona. The Arizona bridge is a reinforced concrete structure clad in the original masonry of the 1830s bridge, which was purchased by Robert P. McCulloch from the City of London. McCulloch had exterior granite blocks from the original bridge numbered and transported to America to construct the present bridge in Lake Havasu City, a planned community he established in 1964 on the shore of...

In June 1732, Oglethorpe and a group of other prominent Britons petitioned for and were eventually granted a royal charter to establish the colony of Georgia between the Savannah River and the Altamaha River. In November 1732 a total of 114 men, women, and children gathered at Gravesend on the River Thames to set sail for the new colony of Georgia. Following a brief visit in Charleston, the colonists proceeded to Port Royal, South Carolina's...

18th Century: Atmospheric Phenomena or Unknown Weapons?

  • 11,919

I wonder if a physicist or geologist could make an approximate calculation of the 1757 event? I wonder if the intensity of a pyroclastic flow is following the inverse-square law, like light does. If a volcano is the sole source of the pyroclastic flow it could be looked at like a point-source and the intensity of the flow being inversely proportional to the square of the distance. This would mean the 400 km distant event would have been 4^2...

Hyperborea: what if it still exists?

The earliest extant source that mentions Hyperborea in detail, Herodotus's Histories, dates from circa 450 BC. And this is where we run into the first problem. As this blog members know, I have a big issue with sources of our history. This one is not an exception. Allegedly, Herodotus wrote his "Histories" in the second half of the 5th century BC. Yet, the earliest copy of some other copy this mankind has in its possession is dated to "some...

America in Asia: 1827 State of Nations Map

In the 1820's, Anthony Finley produced a series of fine atlases in the then leading American cartographic center, Philadelphia. Finley's work is a good example of the quality that American publishers were beginning to obtain. Each map is elegantly presented, with crisp and clear engraving and very attractive pastel hand shading. Topographical and political information is copious, including counties, towns, rivers, and roads. This 1820s was a...

The first underground self-propelled combat unit was designed by Pyotr Rasskazov, from Moscow, back in 1904. At the beginning of the First World War, his drawings were lost, only to emerge later, in Germany. In the early 1930s, the Soviet Union revived this idea.

The image of the incomplete monument was taken by pioneer Stirling photographer Alexander Crowe of 33 Murray Place. Although small, it clearly shows three workmen near the top of the tower, the builder’s hut beneath and the rail for carting the stone to the top of the Craig. When the money for the construction ran out, the tower sat incomplete for years, with a thatch covering provided by Hillhead Farm, Cambusbarron.

Chapter 5. What if the Mappa Mundi is the True Map of the World Hypothesis.

We are going to address some Scriptural details concerning race, and a little bit about gender dynamics, before talking about the division of the land, and tying that into the True Mappa Mundi hypothesis. These details may seem unnecessary and may appear boring on the surface, but it should really help set the stage as to who is who, and give a framework as to what is really going on in the world. Just as any disease is better treated after...

There was just something so familiar about the Mappa Mundi but I had not clue what.. until one day, after gazing upon the maps for the hundredth time, particularly the Ravenna Mappa Mundi, it finally stood out - even though it had been before my face a hundred times before. I am quite looking forward to the constructive feedback from the knowledge base that is here and am quite certain that there are more gems from the minds of those on this...

Book | Giant Cities of Bashan: do they still exist?

Some of these ancient cities have from two to five hundred houses still perfect, but not a man to dwell in them. On one occasion, from the battlements of the Castle of Salcah, I counted some thirty towns and villages, many of them almost as perfect as when they were built. The houses of Bashan are not ordinary houses. Their walls are from five to eight feet thick, built of large squared blocks of basalt; the roofs are formed of slabs of the...

The Phaeacians 'remarkable' ships

The Phaeacians possessed remarkable ships. They were quite different from the penteconters, the ships used during the Trojan War, and they were steered by thought. King Alcinous says that Phaeacians carried Rhadamanthus to Euboea, "which is the furthest of any place" and came back on the same day. He also explains to Odysseus what sort of information the Phaeacian ships require in order to take him home to Ithaca.

The Tower of Babel, Hendrick Van Cleve, and the Hendrick Van Cleve III group

Now, what’s fascinating about Hendrick, is that he loved painting the Tower of Babel. He created so many paintings of it that were so varied, that I think historians realized they needed to tweak the story. Otherwise, it would start to look like this draughtsman was actually making paintings of actual construction, and an actual structure. I’m going to Post one of the pictures I found, before I get into the official narrative’s story about...

Bomb shelter for giants?

The Iroquois believed that in early days there existed a malignant race of giants whose bodies were fashioned out of stone. It is difficult to say how the idea of such beings arose, but it is possible that the generally distributed conception of a gigantic race springing from Mother Earth was in this instance fused with another belief that stones and rocks composed the earth's bony framework.

Here is a hypothesis for you, which I will try and root in some as much research as I can. I hope you will comment and add your ideas. A large part of it is based on various pieces of KD's research/ideas, as well as comments you have all made-brilliant researchers on here. I'd also like to say that I am in no way making light of anyone's religion. I respect and have seen evidence of the power of prayer, spirituality and connection to a higher...

Siberian Wars: Louis XV and Frederick the Great

I have exhausted my normal means of research on this topic, hence the request for investigation. We have some traces of at least two Siberian wars that do not appear to exist in the narrative compliant history. Two european monarchs allegedly participated in the "first Siberian war" in the 18th century. Why would they call it "the first Siberian war" if there was never "the second Siberian war?" Figured if these wars did exist, the first one...

Would you be surprised to learn that Taser technology first mentioned in 1960s, was already available to use as early as 1851? Two harpoons indicated by a letter “A”, were to be connected to a battery indicated by a letter “B” by chains, indicated by a letter “C”. Said chains may be bound in a cord, and said cords and harpoons, excepting the actual points of contact with the body, indicated by a letter “D”, were to be insulated in any...
