Sukanya Mukherjee July 6, Beer was in popular consumption nearly 3, years ago in Mesopotamia modern-day Iraq , a new study has revealed. Published in the Journal of Archaeological Science, the paper has highlighted evidence that shows the Late Bronze Age inhabitants of Mesopotamia enjoyed drinking barley beer, much like we do today. Advertisement The research was conducted by an international team of archaeologists, led by Dr.
While surveying the area recently, the researchers came across remains of numerous pottery vessels, dating back to the Late Bronze Age. Analysis of these pottery fragments, in turn, revealed the presence of chemical compounds indicative of a barley-based fermented drink. Historically, it is hypothesized that beer or at least the precursor to beer-like concoctions was probably developed independently in different parts of the world.
This dawn of proto-beer making possibly harks back to the early Neolithic period, circa BC. However, historians now believe that the oldest known standard recipe for brewing beer actually came from ancient Mesopotamia.
Alaksandu and Trojan language The city of the archaeological layer known as Troy VIIa, which has been dated on the basis of pottery styles to the mid- to late th century BC, lasted for about a century, with a destruction layer at c. It is the most often-cited candidate for the Troy of Homer and is believed to correspond to Wilusa , known from Hittite sources dating to the period of roughly — BC.
These dates correspond closely to the mythical chronology of Greece as calculated by classical authors, placing the construction of the walls of Troy by Poseidon , Apollo and Aeacus at BC and the sack of Troy by the Greeks at BC. Troy VIIa appears to have been destroyed by a war, perhaps the source of the legendary Trojan War , and there are traces of a fire.

Chapter 3 Strange Attraction: The Mystery of Magnetism Some time about the beginning of the period which the archaeologists have called the Barra B. The rise of an elite which could command the labor and no doubt the tribute of the working masses, even before a large-scale dependence on farming had evolved, suggests that the food supply was relatively secure, that an exchangeable surplus was available — at least for the favored few — and that a specialization of labor was under way.
Population densities were high enough to imply that village life was commonplace and that a political superstructure, based certainly on genealogy but perhaps increasingly on wealth as well, was in the process of formation. Indeed, the peoples of Barra-phase Soconusco appear to have created the first ranked societies in all of North America. There is some question as to when the first pottery appeared in Mesoamerica. Ceramic shards found at Puerto Marquez on the west coast of Mexico near Acapulco and dated to B.
They argue that the sophisticated Barra pottery found in coastal Soconusco represents some of the oldest dependably dated ceramic ware in Mesoamerica, but that two other pottery traditions were also in evidence within the region by B. Although it is unclear whether these Mesoamerican complexes developed spontaneously and independently or whether they were influenced by ceramic complexes that are known to have existed in northern South America from one to four millennia earlier, it seems quite apparent that they owed little or no inspiration to each other.
Concurrent with the beginnings of their hierarchical social structure, the people of Soconusco also appear to have begun commemorating the likenesses of their chiefs in monumental sculptures. Not surprisingly, there is considerable difference of opinion among archaeologists regarding the relative age of the sculptures in question. Some contend that they date back to the Early Preclassic ca.
Because they can only be dated stratigraphically, it is not always easy to decide with which horizon they should be associated, especially when it is likely — as some authorities point out — that the sculptures themselves may have been moved and re-erected in new locations. The reader is referred to the arguments on this matter presented by John Graham [ ] and A.

The origin of the City’s placename The name of Birmingham is now applied equally to the City Centre as to the whole of the Metropolitan Borough of the City of Birmingham. In the document as a whole, it usually means the latter; but in this article it generally refers to what we now call the City Centre, or to the medieval borough which effectively preceded it, the area now popularly known as Town. The city’s name translates from the Old English Beorma-ing-ham as ‘Beorma’s people’s village’.
These people may have been followers of a man called Beorma pronounced Berma or, more likely, a tribe or clan called the Beormings, ie. Whichever, they were almost certainly people of Anglian origin who had come southwards from the east Midlands following the valley of the Tame to settle on the lighter soils of the Birmingham sandstone ridge. It is impossible to ascertain whether a leader called Beorma founded a settlement here, or whether it was founded by a people named after him.
Anglo-Saxon placenames ending in -ingham are predominantly found in East Anglia, Lincolnshire and east Yorkshire with only a scattering further west. They are therefore likely be places named early in the Anglo-Saxon settlement. Birmingham was probably so-named by the early 7th century, possibly earlier. It is unlikely to have been a settlement or defined land unit before the Anglo-Saxon period. The development of the name is interesting. Spelling until the age of printing and even afterwards was a haphazard affair.

At the end of the fourth millennium BC, Crete was a rural agricultural society, whose people existed on self-sufficient, subsistence farming. Yet by the early second millennium BC an incredible transformation had taken place. Crete stood as a marvelously complex society with vast palaces, centralized authority, highly skilled craft specialization, heavy traffic in import and export of trade goods, and a complex writing system employed by a central administrative bureaucracy.
The issue which divides the two sides in this debate is: Since olives and grapes could be grown on hillsides and did not require the flat land already being used by wheat farmers, the additional productive land might have allowed the population to increase. To do this, the chiefs might have built large redistribution buildings to hold the agricultural produce until it could be distributed.

Because they exemplified all the traits of the boom in Staffordshire china making typical of 19th century England. Three grandsons of the reputable Meakin china dynasty with the Johnson surname bought a bankrupted tableware pot bank in and went out on their own. That was a brave move. Were the upstarts setting themselves up to fail, or would they rock the oldies with their dynamic success? Meakin’s factory recorded history dates back at least to with James Meakin Snr setting up ownership of the works.

During the Helladic period, a number of major advances were developed including fortified urban settlements with monumental buildings such as corridor houses, which may prove the existence of complex societies organized by an elite or at least achieving corporate, proto-city state form.

Eleazar Wheelock , Dartmouth College founder Dartmouth was founded by Eleazar Wheelock , a Congregational minister from Columbia, Connecticut , who had sought to establish a school to train Native Americans as Christian missionaries. Wheelock’s ostensible inspiration for such an establishment resulted from his relationship with Mohegan Indian Samson Occom.
Occom became an ordained minister after studying under Wheelock from to , and later moved to Long Island to preach to the Montauks. The first major donation to the school was given by Dr. John Phillips in , who would go on to found Phillips Exeter Academy. Occom, accompanied by the Reverend Nathaniel Whitaker, traveled to England in to raise money from churches.

Early life and training Orozco first became interested in art in , when his family moved to Mexico City. Orozco began night classes in drawing at the Academy of San Carlos. When he was 17, however, he lost his left hand in a laboratory accident, and he abandoned his architectural studies. He reentered the Academy of San Carlos in with a renewed passion for painting , and he assiduously set about to become a competent painter. He urged artists to reject the cultural domination of Europe and to cultivate Mexican traits in their work.
Inspired by Doctor Atl, Orozco conscientiously began to explore Mexican themes and to draw more directly from scenes of daily life.

A Twa hunter-gatherer in Uganda climbing a tree to gather honey. Nathaniel Dominy Early Human Ancestors May Have Walked AND Climbed for a Living Africa 31 December The results of recently conducted field studies on modern human groups in the Philippines and Africa are suggesting that humans, among the primates, are not so unique to walking upright as previously thought. The findings have implications for some of our earliest possible ancestors, including the 3.
Associate professor of anthropology Nathaniel Dominy of Dartmouth College, along with colleagues Vivek Venkataraman and Thomas Kraft, compared African Twa hunter-gatherers to agriculturalists living nearby, the Bakiga, in Uganda. In the Philippines, they compared the Agta hunter-gatherers to the Manobo agriculturalists. They found that the Twa and the Agta hunter-gatherers regularly climbed trees to gather honey, an important element in their diets. More specifically, they observed that the climbers “walked” up small trees by applying the soles of their feet directly to the trunk and progressing upward, with arms and legs advancing alternately.
To do this successfully, they said, required extreme dorsiflexion, or bending the foot upward toward the shin to a degree not normally possible among most modern humans. They tested their hypothesis by conducting ultrasound imaging of the fibers of the large calf muscles of individuals in all four groups. The results showed that the Agta and Twa tree-climbers had significantly longer muscle fibers than those of their agricultural counterparts and other “industrialized” modern humans.
