General History Thread


Recommended Posts

I wanted to make a thread for random history content because there's plenty of interesting content out there that has explanations and doesn't necessarily fit into the OOPArts thread or forbidden knowledge topics. It would be interesting to see what others share, and I need to take my mind off more depressing matters. Feel free to contribute any historical content that you find interesting.

 

I'll start it off with the Yamnaya.

Interesting timing to drop a Rome related image with that symbol.

 

Yeah, I always thought that symbol originated in India but a quick bit of research tells me it was more widespread in the ancient world. 

 

The article is also part of the "Britain's always been multicultural" narrative too, when it says: 

 

He’s described as this massively impressive ‘black-skinned’ person, this hero who comes from Troy. I’m wondering why Memnon would be chosen as the name of the gladiator. Is that because we’ve got a black gladiator who is from somewhere well south of Colchester – from north Africa?” Pearce speculated. 

 

Just shows how long we've been victimised by imperialists like that.

well aga-memnon was the leader of the mycaenean greeks in the trojan war:

Etymology

His name in Greek, Ἀγαμέμνων, means "very steadfast", "unbowed" or "resolute".[3] The word comes from *Ἀγαμέδμων (*Agamédmōn) from ἄγαν, "very much" and μέδομαι, "think on".[4]

Description

In the account of Dares the Phrygian, Agamemnon was described as ". . .blond, large, and powerful. He was eloquent, wise, and noble, a man richly endowed."[5]

"..we have them to thank for our language, them to thank for our nation, them to thank for a substantial portion of our blood. We the English are an ethnic group, and they are our progenitors, they were not socialists, nor did they know about egalitarianism"

Are lead tablets discovered in a remote cave in Jordan the secret writings about the last years of Jesus?

 

There  is a thriving market in Middle Eastern antiquities and many shadowy figures involved. One archaeologist has allegedly received death threats.
