Published

on



In March 1974, Chinese farmers digging a well unearthed the greatest archaeological find of the century – the buried Terracotta Army. After coming across a life-sized human head made of clay in Xi’an, China, archaeologists were called in to investigate. What they found was extraordinary. Thousands of life-like terracotta figures from the Qin dynasty, fashioned 2,000 years ago to protect the First Emperor of China in the afterlife. Archaeologist Li Xiuzhen has worked on the site since the 1980s. Her team was the first to discover that each warrior was originally painted in bright colours.

    Terracotta from italian means (Boiling Ground).
    Anyway, who knows how much man power they needed (same as for the building of the pyramidess) to have made each ''soldier" in such detail.

    We were there, say late '90s. I remarked to our guide it was fortunate the site had not been found during the 'Cultural Revolution'. He admitted he was too young to know, but his parents had also expressed relief for the same reason. Mao's idiocy could have caused much greater harm.

    Modern historians often refute the extraordinary claims made by ancient historians, and consider many things exaggerations or myths. But it's fascinating when we discover some things to be true. We find it hard to believe because we live in a much different world where those massive amounts of manpower and money only go towards projects like building the Panama canal, or the NYC subway system, and not into projects we would consider non-essential in our time. People wouldn't believe the ancient Egyptians stacked two million 10 ton stones if the pyramids disappeared in Antiquity. I bet the ancient wonders of the world, like the hanging gardens of Babylon, were as great as they say.

    So reminds me of the Bible stories about man being created from clay and of Noah's arc, no two alike and one of every kind. Keeping an open mind on the facts that those places are here somewhere on earth and no one has yet figured out where or how. Similar to Moses and Egypt, it would make so much sense for the plagues to have came down from the pyramids and all those chambers and things in the pyramids no one has an explanation for their use, what if they were used to hold and breed the locusts and other insects, that where the let out through one of those tunnels heading towards the ought, and fell upon the people living below. This could also apply to the other parts of the plague and areas around the pyramids, especially since during this time frame these were things used in warfare and siege.

    How are you going to make a video profiting off of this where you mention the farmers that found it but completely negate the fact that out of I believe seven people who found this discovery were all pushed off their land. They had their houses and and their land taken from them. They received absolutely nothing for finding this (which sadly is the norm on this planet, to discover something in the credit goes to your government and its museums). One of them has committed suicide and the rest of them have died in poverty of the one or two that are remaining the occasionally get to sign autographs for pennies. I'm not saying you need to be rewarded handsome fee for a discovery, but it certainly seems like the handsome reward for this discovery went to people that didn't discuss it. And now here is the bbc history getting their slice of the pie without ever mentioning the strife that the people who actually deserve the credit for fighting this went through.

    Hai kebodohan kebodohan… Mengapa engkau menghujjah dirimu sendiri sedang engkau adalah ORANG KAPIR ORANG KAPIR yang di pelihara olehnya, oleh sebab engkau di ciptakan dari TANAH sedang mereka di ciptakan dari patung,,, akankah istri istri takut kepadaku karena aku tidak bisa menafkahinya, dan akankah bidadari bidadari ku berhamburan karena merasa takut akan melahirkan ,,, sedang malaikat menghujjah diri mu sendiri setampan tampan yusup dan secantik cantik julaikho, sedang saat ini abad 21 aku merasa lelah dan kecapean, kenapa kalian tidak berusaha menciptakan diri ku wahai kebodohan kebodohan hanya dengan memanggil ku, kenapa kalian tidak berusaha untuk melahirkan ku, sedang tidak ada sekutu apapun di dunia hingga ke akhirat melainkan hanya aku,,, sedang permaisuri permaisuri ku terluka karena keangkuhan kalian tentang kekuatan ku,,, mengapa kalian tidak menciptakan dan melahirkan diri kalian sendiri dari jenis jenis mu, sehingga semua RATU RATU ku ingkar karena kalian setiap saat hanya sebut sebut ISTANAnya, sedang aku maha perkasa lagi maha agung,,, mengapa kebodohan kebodohan menyertai kalian sehingga aku mulai lelah tidak menciptakan dan berusaha melhirkan aku, sedang aku tidak beranak dan tidak pula di peranakan,,,,

    This ritual is very similar to Ancient Egyptians preserving animals and human amulet alongside their deceased to serve in afterlife…sadly though many concubines were buried alive when their Emperor died. Monastic life was their only alternative option to live.

    It’s completely breathtaking, not even a Spielberg movie could dream up an archaeological artefact of thjs spectacular magnitude. 8000 figures, 130 chariots, 520 horses in over 25,000 Sq metres! They believe it’s only a tiny part of a much larger ancient complex. Chinese hearts must’ve been bursting with honour and pride after the first exhibition was opened to the public in 1975, just 1 year after the Terracotta Army was discovered in 1974.

Cyclone Idai: Flying over flooded Mozambique – BBC News

Published

on



As Mozambique counts the cost of Cyclone Idai, the BBC’s Africa editor Fergal Keane joined a helicopter flight over some of the worst-affected areas.

The pilot pointed towards the east across the expanse of brown water. “We are 15 miles from the sea,” he said, “but it feels as if we are right over it.” He was right. Below us, farmland that had been home to thousands of people had disappeared.

Charities say thousands of people are stranded by catastrophic flooding, clinging to roofs or stuck in trees.

About 300 people are confirmed dead in Mozambique and Zimbabwe, but the toll is expected to rise.

Killer whale hunts and eats great white shark | BBC News

Published

on



A solitary killer whale, or orca, has been filmed hunting and killing a great white shark in an “astonishing” attack off the coast of South Africa.

Scientists said it was “unprecedented” and showed the exceptional predatory skills of killer whales.

Two orcas in particular off South Africa’s coast have been observed before working together to hunt and kill sharks, including great whites.

Dr Alison Towner, a marine biologist from Rhodes University in Grahamstown, South Africa, led the study.

“This caught us off guard,” said shark biologist Dr Towner.
