"Of course. He is in europe at the moment. So guiding us on the strip down lunacy lane. we'll be my lovely wife lucinda lucinda. Thanks for joining me. My pleasure nella so tell us which barrel of bullshit will be digging into today. How about the one where you claim you're going on vacation. That's not really in keeping with the theme of the segment. maybe something. do you have something like pseudoscience. Well i figured since. I was stepping in for this one. We'd go with my all time favorite corrupted and the conspiracy theory. I was most reluctant to give up. When i became a skeptic the loch ness monster really okay it was actually the one about the brown note but nessie was a close second. That's fair that's fair okay. So what is the loch ness monster. Does that count for the spreadsheet. Ooh i don't know i'll have to ask andrew anyway. The loudness monster or nessie is nothing. It doesn't exist and we can say that about as definitively as we can say anything doesn't exist because unlike pretty much all of the other cryptos the lockneys monster must by definition be in this one lake and it isn't okay. I think we've gotten a bit ahead of ourselves here so let's back up a bit. When does the story of the loch ness monster begin. Well some say. The story goes all the way back to the sixth century when the irish monks saint columba. Chronicle the claims of the local picks. Okay but that's fucking nonsense in those people are fucking lying true. There have actually been several efforts to grasp an antiquity by presenting entirely normal stories from the area and pretending that they were about the police officer the saint columba one is indeed a story about a sea monster near the river ness but pretty much. All the stories about the saints had the odd sea monster in them so either. The world was just teeming with mythical sea creatures back in the five hundred or that one can easily be dismissed. There are a couple of other stories from the late eighteen. Hundreds that have been retrofitted onto the legend as well one from eighteen. Seventy one that amounts to a gas all weird log and kept it to himself for sixty years and another from eighteen eighty eight. That can be summed up as person sees animal. But the real story doesn't start until nineteen thirty three with the audi mckay citing okay before we get to that. What's the point of disguising the true origin of the story. Well the whole meth rest on the idea that a breeding population of stores. Or if you wanna go all the way into crazy town one immortal please. Yes or has lived in that lake for sixty six million years so either you retrofit some unrelated stories into it or you admit that. Nobody noticed that shift until nineteen thirty three. Okay yeah i get it all right so you were saying something about the all d mckay citing yes so to be clear. There was already an established myth by nineteen thirty three. That suggested that there was a giant monster that lived in loch ness. But that's true of maybe one out of every four bodies of water on earth but the outta mckay citing is the first time this story gets put down ink specifically the irony corier. Where an article. By one alex campbell kicks off the century delusion in it campbell tells the story of algae mccain her unnamed husband who were driving by the lake on the night of april fifteenth nineteen thirty three when he saw something fishy in the lake. According to a later recollection she yelled. Stop the beast. And then she and her husband watched nessie roll around in the water for a full minute before sinking below the surface. Okay so what. What did they describe not much. The article says that body was the size of a whale and then it left water. Cascading churning like a simmering cauldron usually cauldrons aren't employed for simmer right. I don't know but audi said she knew that quoting directly from campbell's article here there was no ordinary denison of the depths because apart from its enormous size the beast in taking the final plunge sent out waves that were big enough to have been caused by passing schemer. Okay how is that apart from its enormous size. No idea seems like a necessary cops. Yeah but regardless. That story was the spark that would ultimately set the world aflame with nessie fever. There were a couple more sightings that year one from a couple that says that they saw nessie crossing the road in front of their really like they had to stop and wait like it was a school crossing apparently and the other from a guy out walking his dog that guy. Hugh gray is the first to snap. Nazis photo wood jr. If you think about it as crazy weird it. This is one thousand nine thirty three. It's not like you had a camera on his phone or anything anyway. The original negative of the voter was lost in the picture super blurry but from what we know now it was almost certainly a picture of autre. Oh okay well okay. But that's not the famous photo that everybody thinks of when they think of nessie right nope that one. The surgeons photograph comes from a year later. It was first published. In april nineteen thirty four in that bastion of journalistic credibility the daily mail and it was so steeped in legitimacy that the guy took the picture didn't want his name associated with it. Yeah that's a good start nia so if you've ever seen or read anything about lock monster you've seen this photo it shows. I decided lee plays the a source shaped head neck. Poking out of the water with huge waves slowing to either side of it like it was bleeding huge. Wake or at least that's what you usually see. But that's because the photo has been cropped in the crop photo. You can see that it's actually tiny object of some two or three feet long and those huge waves on either side of it are actually just normal sized lake ripples so what was it was like a like a big swan or something even worse. It was a deliberate hoax. Apparently some dude found some fakeness footprints and got made fun of for believing that they were real so he concocted this whole photograph as revenge. This was all exposed way. The hell back in nineteen seventy-five apparently but all the crypto zoologists that want to sell books about monsters conveniently. Leave that part out. Well okay but there are other sightings and photos and stuff our so just because this one photo is a hoax. Doesn't mean that nasty doesn't exist. Your like maybe the one taken in may of nineteen seventy seven by anthony. Doc shiels and you can tell trustworthy. He is because nickname is doc. And he isn't a doctor He's actually a magician in a psychic isn't no he is. He also didn't take pictures of the loch ness monster either. But that didn't stop him from claiming that he did and presenting them to the public. Unlike the typical store image we get shiels.

"Uh, you guys are gonna be shocked to hear this gave us I don't know if you are the Taliban form the new government and they are not very inclusive. I can't believe that I'm surprised. I know they are not very Let's see if anybody's going to put on the funny hats and march out there because we're so repressive here. They have new rules for is it? Is it just women that are grown or for girls or what is it? Females female best way they scrap and by the way, not because I didn't know if it was for the For over 18 or under what happened. Not people who identify as females because those people don't exist over there is what everybody to understand the way that this thing works. So first of all, there will be no sports whatsoever. As they have put it. No, there is no reason for women to play sports so boys can go out and kick the ball around. Girls cannot. They can play that game. Isn't that the game where they play and they got the dead? The dead lamb like in Rambo two and they run it around with their in their horses, and they throw it into yet they can't play that can't do it. That's so there's none of that They can go to College, but full burqa kit like super, like double like we talk about double masking. You cannot show anything. You're segregated from the boys. You have to Leave first. Uh and you have to arrive first. You cannot see or be anywhere near the boys whatsoever. But that's only in higher learning. Women are allowed to be nurses. They're not allowed to be doctors. They're allowed to be teachers, but they're not allowed to be engineers or lawyers. Because, well, you know, inclusivity. Part of the world is just crazy. Yeah. You know, and this is them, by the way, being somewhat right, open minded compared to what it was. There's no ruling yet on television, which was banned before and Kite flying, which is a very popular Think throughout the Middle East, uh, was banned before no words on that. But as far as like, you can no longer have a picture like Let's say you have a picture of your dog. That is illegal. All right. Let me ask you this because everybody has been asking this since we left Afghanistan. Um, Was it worth it over the 20 years and all these soldiers are saying the same thing. Why did I go over there? If everything went down the toilet? Why did I go over there? All right. So let me ask this question. 20 years ago, where women even allowed to go to college. I'm guessing. No, I didn't. I haven't looked it up yet. No, they weren't even allowed to go to, uh, so you know, so 20 years later, women are allowed to go to college in Afghanistan. I know the rules that you just put together are insane and ridiculous, but I mean, you've got to take your winds where you can get them. Absolutely. And so if 20 years ago, they weren't ever allowed to go to college 20 years later, they are allowed to go to college. It's a Taliban. I mean, you got to. You got to say okay, that there's some sort of growth there, right? Well, I mean, I think what they're waiting for is look, they got away with it before, because quite frankly, nobody in God's Green Earth wanted anything to do with Afghanistan all those years ago until crazy escapes would always tell everybody. Uh, you know, when crazy leaves your house then then people take notice, and that's what end up having. That's why the Taliban was so mad at bin Laden and al Qaida because it brought scrutiny on them, which they did like and Now they they may be forced in some ways if they want to deal with the world and have some sort of relationship, uh, they may have to Show some semblance of growth by allowing women to at least continue to have some sort of education. Uh, and stuff like that, But I think a lot of people are waiting for. You know the minute the the eyes, not on the prize. They're going to snap back at it, and you know, back in the go. Saudi Arabia. Can you even walk around without a man? If you're a woman? You can't do that. Yeah. No, no, You can't. I mean, we're and we're supposedly friends with that country. Yeah, you know, but we're friends with them because they have something that of course, Of course. I mean, that's alright. And on top of that, you know, there's also geopolitical things are also enemies of certain enemies that we Dislike more than we dislike the way that they are, But I think people look at Saudi Arabia where you look over there and you're like you guys are living in the sixth century. I look over here and I see a guy driving a Ferrari with a leopard in it, and he's going to his private jet. And and everybody's you know, on a gilded Street of gold is the way they look at over there. And so I think that's why Saudi Arabia also has, uh, you know, they have a financial play that right now. Afghanistan just doesn't have. I wonder if if we left Iraq Better place than than we left Afghanistan. You know, you haven't heard once We had the search right? So once that happened, it really has been so much more quiet. Now. Here's something that people aren't talking about. It should be. Apparently, uh, China. Is talking to the Taliban. Now they're denying it, but other people are saying, Well, that's not true. Uh, Weighing the options of moving on into the Bagram Air Force base. Really? What did I say? China is in it to win it. They'll be friends with the devil because their whole thought processes. We want all of those minerals because if we can control those We can control more of the world. It's a scary thing. Super scary, Super scary. China scares the heck out of me. There's no doubt about it and they're not allowing. You know anybody manly men on television. Just notice. I saw that too. You're only allowed on TV in China if you are a man Yeah. Yes, that is. That is absolutely Yeah. I mean, we're we live in a different world. We're here and I love it when people get all upset about Oh, we don't have this and people can't do that. And you know they're fighting over like choices. And they can wear the hats and scream and yell and do anything they want. And there are places like to talk about from Saudi Arabia to China to all this where they're more interested in winning and we're interested in and I'm not quite sure we that's just shows you how blessed we are in the West because We can make up things to be angry about. For instance, we're interested in canceling people. Yes. We're interested in fighting the other side of the aisle. And we're not interested in getting past this pandemic. No, uh and we've got a lot of leaders around, Um, America that are doing a terrible job. Yeah. And it goes from the White House to the governor's office here to you go on and on, and you know those are the problems that we have here in America, No doubt about it, and it's you know, it's nuts, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Because The reality Is this naming some other places? You want to lift the wet and I'm talking about the West. I'll stay right here. There you go. All right, coming up..

WSOP Field Sizes Are Dropping
"I know i said the wsb gets a pass on field sizes in a year over year comparison because things have changed dramatically since twenty twenty however last year's fields was two thousand one hundred twenty six centuries from fourteen hundred hundred fifty. Five weeks seems awful. Yeah it feels like a really steep drop off right there. And i know that we talked about it and i was thinking something like maybe like a thirty percent. Drop off. I think would been good and acceptable. Just based upon the fact of everything that's going on in poker right now that having that kind of field size would still be good but this does feel quite thin for championship. Event as a sixty two percent drop year over year in total entries. That's that's ugly no matter what. The circumstances are surprised that low. I did have it being over a thousand. Maybe getting closer to fifteen hundred total entries but Just seem to be a sort of a. Instead of being the exclamation point at the end of the series. It was kind of a hard thud.

"Said before he started, all sales are final. Uh, you know, like this used to pull the math this up with a million dollars in it, and it falls out. Nobody's going to want to give it back. And that's considered content by frankly you're right, sir. Both these men present their case before the TV judge Judge Mathis Shannon says the rules of the auction were all sales are final, and therefore anything that's in the grill belongs to me. And and John Wood says, Uh, excuse me that that's my foot. You can't be buying my foot. How did the TV judge come down on this? What was what was the ruling Bruce? He found in favor of John would, but He also recognize that Shannon did have a legitimate claim of ownership, as he had argued, And so he ruled that the foot could be returned to John, but that Shannon should be compensated to the sum of I think about $5000, which wasn't a bad return on his initial couple of dollars, for which he paid But it does reveal that you don't necessarily own things out, right? You would think that you own your own body, and therefore no one can claim ownership over it. But Actually, you can't do with your body. As you wish in in Roman law and a lot of our legal systems of basil room in law, there's a there's a phrase called just attendee, which means the right to do as you wish with something, and that's the ultimate form of ownership. To the extent that If you own something outright, you could even destroy if you want. But you can't do with your body as you wish. Because you can't destroy your body. Suicide is illegal. Many legal systems and you can't sell your organs You can't sell. You know bits of your body, So if you were the owner, you would be able to do that financial transaction And that's why I think the mummified foot is such an intriguing example. What happens when you get a clash between intuitions about ownership and actually the legal status of bill transfer, as Shannon rightly points out? So my point is that the ownership which we intuitively think we have over our bodies is actually contestable from a legal point of view, you know, And this was this is a crazy story involving the leg, but but you can see in in many other prosaic domains that we have these clashing notions of of ownership, not just when it comes to our bodies, but I feel like I own the apartment that I'm renting because I lived there. You know, my landlord, of course, would feel differently. That's right. And, of course, lease ownership is another example. You don't really own your leased car until you've made that final payment and and who owns the moon and who owns various parts of space. I mean, these are things which are governments are still fighting or they have these treaties. But at one point, I think Russia tried to plant a flag on the bottom of the Arctic, and so There are areas which are still in dispute, and that's exactly the reason that ownership as Jeremy Bentham, the philosopher pointed out, there's nothing written in nature to tell you who owns what it really comes down to conventions. In 2018, the artist Banksy sold a painting title girl with balloon. I want to play you a news clip of what happened at the auction a jaw dropping moment. A Banksy painting sells at auction for $1.4 million the gavel drops. Answer is painting. The painting drops with the gavel. What exactly happens Bruce? What happened was when the gavel dropped, the paintings seemed to kick into action and slowly descended. Into a hidden threshing machine that Banksy had built into the bottom of the of the display. And literally, the picture was shredded in front of the whole audience, gasping and dismay as this valuable piece of art was spontaneously destroyed in front of the very eyes. What? What banks he was doing and this is very typical of him. He challenges us to examine. What do we mean by ownership? Because he never claims ownership for anything, And he challenges us each time to rethink about what it is to say that you actually own property. There are also other news events in some ways that that bring into focus the you know, contested notions of ownership. I'm thinking of what happened in 2000 and one after the Taliban took control of Afghanistan. They decided they now had possession of the country, and they destroyed two statues of the Buddha that had been constructed in the sixth century. Their reasoning followed the idea that if you own something you can do whatever you like to it up to, and including Destroying it. And, of course when they did it, the world was absolutely aghast. Yeah, yeah. And of course, if you trace back into the history of all countries, imperialism Uh, you know who owns a country when you invade it and take it over and then can you ask for things back when the types of time turn again? For example, the British Museum Is faced with a crisis that many of its collections a lot of the indigenous people are requiring the back and again. This is also an issue in the US and who owns things is is it taken by force? It really is a minefield. I'm wondering here if we can extrapolate this to an even bigger stage, Bruce Think about the point at which Native American tribes first came into contact with European settlers, part of what followed stem from the fact that they had very different notions of what constituted ownership. Yes. So this is the famous transaction for owning Manhattan, the island of Manhattan for apparently something like $26. And the reason that this is noteworthy is that it wasn't really a fair trade because In order to be a fair trade. It has to be a mutually agree convention about who owns what now, if the Indians who didn't have a concept of ownership in that sense that the land can be owned. To them..

"Doing it. i see is definitely the way to go as opposed to hauling it along unless you're somebody who's dealing in very small fine wares and they don't really have a choice or there you get the idea. So they're sitting there and they're really enriching themselves in that position as far as the economy itself and what they're known for however from what we can tell and unfortunately in this case there's not a heck of a lot that is written that has been covered by scholars that focuses on the so a lot of what they find is through. Either talk from outside sources from this area or archaeological finds and one of the things that they did because they were they were very very good when it came to manufacturing and exporting textiles one of the biggest such examples of this is what is known as persian silk which is something that became highly sought after in this case in addition to that they also known for creating very fine cut glass which is also something that in a way. Very very much competes with andrea. 's tation for doing just that duck potion soukous though none of to this day. That's very by some snow thing. Yeah absolutely and basically. They're very fortunate because they have two opposite looking geographically ends to their territory which are extremely beneficial they have the one that looks east towards china and india and obviously the riches off abilities are even with the chinese stability in going on and the questions that are surrounding that. There's still a great many commerce moss abilities and of course india is no different and ultimately will be whoever it was in that area. It's one of the reasons why he was so strategically important for commerce warn of view. But this is the thing. That's really strange about assassinates. Is that all these things that we'd really love to know about them. Whether it be trade and what i mean know about them. I'm not talking simply about archaeological finds in the little things that we can piece together but there isn't a whole lot going on in terms of people that are writing about things like trade or governmental administration or every day life. That sort of thing. All the histories are either one. Like i said. Written by outsiders the art not intimately involved in this respect or those who are extremely interested centuries later and that. That's kind of the rub when it comes to looking into the sort of thing but ultimately this is the funny part actually at least i think it is while they weren't taking anything down at the time and as far as the other things that we would find interesting about them what they were happened later especially after the muslim conquest in the sixth century is for the arab muslims who.

Some people are talking about a conscious effort. To dismantle everything that Trump administration Jared Jason David Friedman accomplished with the album accords. Is that what we're witnessing Tom? Well, I think we see that all around. I think that's kind of the Rorschach test for the entire administration we've seen in the last 36 hours. Visa VI. The origins. Of the Wuhan virus. Every act of this administration is an attempt post facto to crush Donald Trump. This is what the media is doing the establishment doing that's what matters, however.

"The nor the gold in the North is the artifact. I uses this particular story, partly because the ark of the Covenant sort of been done before you know, Raiders of the Lost Ark. It's It's a little bit over done as far as fiction. On bears no real evidence showing that that it's here. I think it's definitely a possibility, as you suggest. The golden menorah is is one of those artifacts that it is. Straight is Maurin important in Judaism than in other religions. Where is the ark of the Covenant? I think it's important to all the bronek religions, both Christianity and Islam as well. And so what I wanted to do in my story was somehow motivate. The massage that modern day Israeli intelligence to get involved in the story, And so I chose the golden the Nora don't get too deep into that. But basically one of the things that is one of the debates in the ongoing in Israel is whether or not The third temple should be built. The first Temple was destroyed by the Babylonian in I believe the sixth century BC the second Temple Harris, seven was destroyed in 70 80 ish by the Romans. And then the questions always been whether to build Third Temple and one of the arguments against it is we can't build the temple until we have all the treasures the gold manure and the temple is true. Bred all they're the things that God told us. It was supposed to put in it. So we get those back. We can't rebuild and so The Goldman Nora has particular significance to those who want to rebuild the third temple. The feeling being once that is found that will open the door to the possibility to rebuild that, And of course, that will really Set the match to the tinderbox that is the Middle East because there's no way the Muslims who are you know who view that area as sacred to themselves as well would allow the The Jews to rebuild the temple over the dome of the rock and be off with mosque in that kind of thing. So so it's a real tender box over the Goldman or it were that to be found, which set that whole thing off again. And is there? Is there evidence that the Golden Man or maybe in America? There's not evidence, not none that I found that. That's one of the that's one of the artifacts like the Ark of the Covenant that has disappeared. It may be the Goldman or there is a little bit of evidence that Perhaps the Vatican has custody of it, Um It's strange because all of the things all of the treasures that are listed in the book of Exodus is part of a star is being part of what we call the Tabernacle, the holy of holies. All the things the Ark of the Covenant of the Staff of the Rod of Aaron, the Pot of Man of the table is true bred the golden menorah. All of those things were missing, so it's not just like We're missing one or two of them. Everything's missing. And so that leads me to believe that everything at a certain point during probably these uprisings was taken and hidden in a in a single place, or perhaps in multiple places. By a single group of people, probably the level families. The Levite Eliza, the priestly families named named in the Old Testament is being the custodians. The caretakers of the temple and its treasures. So you mentioned this the second Jewish revolt? 1 32, a d. The bar copped to revolt against the Romans. That was perhaps, but I guess was put down by this ninth Legion. And so they actually issued coins Commemorating the bark, aka uprising, and that's what they found in the Ohio Valley. Right, right. So amongst the coin amongst the many Roman coins Roman era coins found in the Ohio River Valley. Uh, is there are a number three or four different bar copper coins. So bar Kafka was a freedom fighter. Simon Bar Kafka. Bar. Koplan means Son of the star, and they basically they called him the common son of a startling comments. Cinnamon and the battle cry of the revolt was a comment for the Jews. So they issued coins, as was common during that time period. And these are copper coins with the name bar copped the right on him are some of the coins that were found in the Ohio River Valley. The second century coins. Perfectly match. You know what I was what I was writing about my story. I was. I was thrilled to find that they were actually there. What's even more interesting? Richard is another artifact, which I've written about before. But not in this context. Something called the Bat Creek Stone, which was a Hebrew carving. Found in a burial Cherokee burial mound by a Smithsonian archaeologists in the late 18 hundreds, and for many years it was displayed at the Smithsonian upside down the belief being that it was a Cherokee script of some kind. And at one point, the 19 fifties and Jewish patent lawyer from Chicago who happened to be studying ancient Jewish artifacts. Walk through the Smithsonian's that wait a second if you turn that upside down. It's paleo Hebrew. It's second century Hebrew and the fact the translation of it is a comet for the Jews. It's the exact battle cry that the bar Kafka freedom fighters were using. So this high things really tightly together and even more. The point there was an ear spool here. I wouldn't hearing type things found with the stone that was carbon dated. Back to that same time period. So we start looking at that you say Wow, That's an awful lot of coincidence to have the same battle cry used in the uprising. Carved onto US stone found in a burial mound in the Ohio River Valley, dating back to the same time pay back to the 2nd 2nd century. And that's not the only Jewish artifact. There's also something called the deck, a log stone found in new in Newark, Ohio, again High River Valley. It has the carving of Moses with his name on it and around the perimeter of the stone. It's about the size of a of a channel clicker for your television set is the 10 Commandments carved in Hebrew? Wooden platform upon which this This carving. Was found with saddle It sat upon this car. This wooden platform was itself carbon dated to around 1 35 a D again another perfect match for the same time period. Question has to be asked. Why are Jewish artifacts in the Ohio River Valley dating back to the second century? Who could possibly have carved them? Even if the Romans were here? They wouldn't do it. It has to be Romans. With some Jews along with them, and that's where we get the treasure, right? I don't to me. This sounds like pretty much a slam dunk. And you're a lawyer if you had to present this evidence in a court Uh, how do you What would your chances be? Do you think? Do you think he'd win? I think I do think I would win and one of the one of the litmus test I used when I sit down to write a story is I always say go down the rabbit hole and I can I gather evidence. Come back up. When I set my evidence on my desk, and I look at and say, Would I be comfortable making this case to a jury? Because that's really what my readers are there. My jury? I mean, if I if I can't sell the case Of them that I'm not gonna write the story. I'll find something else to write about. And I honestly did not think that there would be enough Roman era evidence. I just didn't know I didn't know about it. I hadn't put all the pieces together. I was blown away by how much There was. And example of that is typically it takes me six or seven months to write a book. This one. I wrote it in 101 Days, so 66 months, three months and 11 days. Quite fast is normal. And the reason for that was because the evidence was just so overwhelming. The book basically wrote itself. It just sort of poured out of me. That didn't hurt. Of course, we're in a pandemic. It wasn't a lot of other things to keep me occupied. But this one there was just so much evidence. And so yes, I would be very comfortable making this case to a jury. All right. We'll take a time out when we come back. We'll talk about the Brandenburg Stone and Kentucky and other Roman artifacts here are I contain a Turner.

This was unplanned absence, seizures that home little bit under the weather. She should be fine and back. On Monday. If Mandy were here, I'd be here is a guest to do our little Friday afternoon or Friday afternoon between two and three movies segment. Joined Mandy and Dave every Friday to do that. We've got two movies that were going to do today. Dave and I already did the movie FA Tal with Hilary Swank. Now we're going to do the movie called The Dig today. Didn't see this one. But millennial Grant has seen it so he can help me with it. And let me just do this set up. Grant and then you can you can jump in. This takes place in England on the eve of the Second World War, said in about 1939 or so the blitz with the Nazi bombing of London is about to begin. It's based on a true story. Incidentally, the dig on Earth is something called the Sutton Hoo treasures. And this was the remains of a ship going back to the sixth century. That turns out is residing under a number of mounds on the estate of Edith Pretty. She's the widow who has now taken over the estate. She's in failing health. She has a a new illness that is probably going to be life shortening. But she's always had an interest in archaeology, and she's always wanted to unearth would whatever's below these mounds and that now she's decided to do it so She retains. Ah, local Local man by the name of Basil Brown, played by Rafe fines. He's a self taught working class amateur archaeologist who has acquired brilliance and immense knowledge. And he becomes the simply the excavator. He also has his own theories as to what might be under those mounds, and he starts working without Any, uh, any equipment other than a shovel in a trial, So it isn't as if he has a backhoe or something like that, that he could bring in there and he works day after day well into the night. He's wholly dedicated to this. He's also very humble in his self acquired knowledge of this, Carrie Mulligan plays Edith Perry. She's the wealthy widow. And she tells Basil that her interest in archaeology is much like his when she was. Ah, young kids scarcely old enough to hold a trowel. She says. She started doing this kind of thing on a nameth your level. S o. The film evolves a relationship This puts me in a world apart. I mean, she's she's inherited. She's not a royal, but she's inherited upper class British Uh, British widow and he's a simple man. With a rickety bicycles, lady he rides to her state each day to do the work. Uh, as the as the excavation continues at a certain point, it becomes obvious that they're onto something very, very exciting. And at that point on academic archaeologist Charles Phillips is brought into this without invitation and takes over the whole thing. He wants to get get rid of gray finds, but Edith insists that he can still stay just to do menial labor. Well, Charles Phillips takes takes over the entire project. His theory is through what maybe under the mound turns out to be wrong. And Basil. Brown's theory turns out to be right on target, figuring it was something that predated by centuries. What Phillips thought s o. The the story evolves. Asai said. It's based on a true story, but they take some liberties in order to generate more audience support. There's the hint of of maybe some kind of a romantic connection between Edith Pretty and Basil Basil Brown. In addition to that, they invent that some other characters. One of whom is played by Lily James. Her character is Peggy Piggott. She's an academic. Archaeologist herself. You might remember her. If you watch Downton Abbey Lily James played the Lady Rose and she has a very natural duty. That is somewhat disguised in this because since she's an academic, they give her these unattractive horn rimmed glasses that she she wears toe play down her her beauty, and she, she winds up falling for a relative of Edith Perry. Where then joins the R A. F joins the Royal Air Force. This wasn't part of the real story. But perhaps this was added in order to attract a younger audience. It won't be successful in attracting younger audiences is not the kind of thing That appeals to most millennials, with the exception of millennial Grant, who is years above his his birth certificate age, sophisticated with discriminating tastes. Uh, So what are the character The sun, the young boy he's probably about 12 years old. He's the son of Egypt, Perry and he's interested in in space and the heavens. On gets to guess. T O work with Basil Brown's a telescope and a father and son relationship develops between the two of them. Which is a good sidebar for the story s so it's not a It's not an action film know, Murder's involved. It's It's more intellectual and historical, but I kind of like movies like that. So I really enjoyed this one. Grant. What do you have to say? I wasn't sure going into whether it was gonna bore me or if I was going to get into it, But I really liked it. And you spoke about Robert, the son of Edith, either Etess character in the movie, and I thought the relationship between him and Basil is what really made the movie for me the way that they interacted. And then after Basil left the one time and the Sun came looking for him on his bicycle. Thought their interaction is what really made the movie for me and the scene where they're all laying on their back in the hole that they've dug and they were looking up at the stars together. That was beautiful to me and The way they filmed. The meticulous approach to the dig is what I really like, because it showed you how much Little mistake can affect the outcome of what they're trying to do so overall, I really loved the movie and one thing about it. I believe this is true. Is when Edith decides to give credit to Basil. After after a basically the whole dig is taken away from him, and then I believe in real life. He never got any of the credit for any of the dig, right? Hey, did later on his name was added. But just as ah minor addiction addition, Charles Phillips, of course, wanted to take credit for everything. And Basil was the kind of humble older gentleman that didn't want to compete with someone. He was just interested in the discovery and didn't want credit for it. But down the road. I think there's some kind A plaque or something that okay that includes his name, so he did get some recognition. But actually, he was the moving force right? And their their passion his Andy, this passion for the project. Really? Shine through and that's I think that's what kept me engaged was that they were so involved and into it that it made me want to figure out what was under there and what was going to come next, But it was very slow paced. But it kept my interest the entire time. Would it be fair to describe this is a dirty movie. Well, it's definitely dirty. Nothing. Just a lot of dirty Andy. Yeah, And when he gets it, I don't want to give away too much. But when he gets trapped under the dirt I've seen Oh, my gosh, I thought that was the end of Basil Brown. The end of Basil Brown. Maybe that's the next movie. And his wife's character, which I've heard that the way she was portrayed was not very flattering, but I loved his wife's character in the movie. Yeah, completely his support system. And was there for him when he was struggling with the decision whether to go back or not so all around, I thought it was a great great film. And and Robert the Sun whose mom hadn't disclosed anything about her illness. He has a clear sense that something seriously wrong with his mom and that she may not be around too much longer. Dave they've lowered didn't see the movie, but When Grant said that this may be the end of Basil brown. I thought immediately that would jog your memory to a James Cagney to an Edward G. Robinson line, right, Dave. Hello, Dave. Dave. David's They've still.

I'm glad it's available to a huge audience on Netflix and glad to have gained from it heightened and lengthened sense of human history. The dig in question is called Sutton Hoo.

As a bicycle's his way to the House of Edith Pretty. She's a wealthy widow played by Carey Mulligan, and she's eager to investigate a mysterious group of mounds on her property. The project calls for an archaeologist, not Indiana Jones, necessarily but someone with more training than basil, who did make the discovery in real life. He describes himself here with quiet pride. As an excavator, but the nation is preparing for war. No archaeologists are available and basil will have to do That's how the dig addresses issues of class basil knows more about the history and texture of Suffolk soil than any credentialed expert A museum might have sent also gives us an example of an archetype dear to English films.

The City of Carthage
"Welcome back to another episode. Five minutes in Church history on this episode. We're going to a place to a very famous city in the ancient world. The city of Carthage Carthage was first settled by the Phoenicians. This of course was a crucial city right as were on the Mediterranean Sea. Carthage came to be known as the master of the Mediterranean. Sea Trade after the Phoenicians was part of the PUNIC. PUNIC empire, and then under Caesar Augustus who reigned from fourteen BC to twenty seven ad. Of course, this is the Caesar Augustus of the Gospel Narratives in the birth of Christ under Caesar Augustus Rome to control of Carthage and it became a great Roman city. It was second only to Rome and the Roman Empire Rivaling Alexandria from time to time for that position, but most give it to Carthage. At any given time in these centuries, the population of Carthage would be two hundred fifty thousand people that had all the telltale signs of a Roman city. There were theaters in the republic buildings. There were the extensive baths. There were aqueducts for. Water across the city, and even into the fields for farming, there was an extensive Roman road system. Soldiers were kept. There was a very busy port city and a very prosperous city. It also has quite a role in church history. It was the home of Talionis. Of course. Is that great church father from one sixty to two twenty as the one who gave us the word Trinity, and brought together all that biblical teaching of who got is in his Trinitaria and being, and so we have the word trinity coined at Carthage and two Oh. Three Carthage was the site of the martyrdom of perpetual and Felisa toss those very brave young women, and the wonderful story of their martyrdom in their courage in their stand for Christ. Well, it was at Carthage. and. The to fifty CIPRIAN was bishop of Carthage. This was on the heels of the decian persecution very intense persecution by the Roman emperor Shas. And after the persecution, and there was some relenting of it, folks were allowed back into the church created quite a controversy was known as the Donna test controversy that raged throughout the church from the fourth to sixth centuries and a key player in that controversy was CIPRIAN Bishop of Carthage. In three ninety seven. It was the site of the Third Council of Carthage. And the topic of discussion was the New Testament Canon and coming out of that council was an affirmation of the twenty seven books of the New Testament, so it played a role in the Canon controversies in development of the Early Church and in four sixteen, the Palais jeans were condemned at Carthage, so it played a role in the development of the doctrine of original sin. So what a fascinating city with rich history both in terms of the ancient world end in church history well as Rome was sacked by the barbarians in four ten carthage was sacked by the vandals and four, Twenty Nine Carthage became the capital of the vandal empire which spanned across that great north. Coast, and of course that North African coast had the Mediterranean Sea to the north, and the vast Sahara desert to the south. Is Long came on the scene, the six hundreds, and began to threaten from the East and Right at the end of the six hundred at the battle of Carthage Carthage fell to Islam. It was dominated by Islamic control. There was a brief time during the Crusades when Carthage was retaken, but only for a short time. It remained Muslim throughout the era of the reformation and right onto the present day. Carthage in the present day is a suburb of Tunis. Capital city of the North African nation of Tunisia. Tunisia's the first government North Africa to give protection for religious freedom. But the nation itself is still dominated by Islam and while there is a church. They're going way back to those early centuries. It is still a church that suffers persecution in our present day.
Meggan Watterson | Christs First Apostle and Her Gospel of Love
"Hi Megan, welcome to the House Meditations podcast. Thank you, thank you for having me. Yeah. I'm really excited to to speak to you about. Of Topics today that includes your meditation and condemned practices. the life of Mary Magdalene in Christ. Women in early Christianity, and as you write in your book the Christianity we haven't yet tried. We haven't tried yet, yes. I think it might be instructive for our listeners for us to situate our conversation. By talking about the person of Mary Magdalene so, can you tell us who Mary Magwar mangled was? What was her relationship to Christ? Well, I love to start that conversation with. A clarification, which is that Mary Magdalene was not a prostitute. 'cause most people. That's how they have come across our. That's how they've been told about her is that she is the penitent prostitute, the woman who sinned much and was forgiven much So this. was a story of fictitious story created about her around the sixth century it within the Catholic tradition and the Catholic Church has actually. wrote a formal apology in the nineteen seventies and have corrected that misunderstanding of her and then Pope Francis recently rehabilitation sort of rehabilitate. That's the word he rehabilitated her. And she is now officially the apostle to the apostles, and that to me is very significant, not because there is anything ever. It's not that there's anything innately derogatory about sex in the body or you know. Anything having to do with that it the reason why to me it's so significant and important is because it begins to us closer to the truth of who she really was. Which which is the person Christ resurrected to? Right, she was his witness. She was there at the Tomb, not by accident not. Happen to just be in the right place at the right time if we include her Gospel among the other gospels that were co defied in the fourth century, if we if we reintroduce her gospel as just as significant just as worthy of taxed and scripture it. It speaks to Christianity, that included her included her in authority clued included her partnership with Christ, and that's really how I would describe and define them regardless of whether you ever go the sort of Davinci code rabbit hole of Were they married and. Did they have a physical relationship. They have a physical relationship. Physical Child You. We don't even need to go there at this point right now. It's so significant to identify and what we can know. empirically is that they were companions. They were partners and we know that from the. We know that even just from the New Testament exactly that we add these other Gospel, so can you help so for those of us? Who aren't scholars of the Bible or theologians? Can you help situate us? Okay? We have the the new. Testament that actually speaks about Mary Magdalene. Just spoke about that. She was present at at the resurrection, and she was the first person who Christ spoke to right after. They have that. We have that like an that. When I was raised Catholic that was the story was a prostitute who he was speaking to that what I was told. These whole other said of writings of Gospels that were around. There wasn't a codified Christianity after Christ right there were. Complaint Forms of writing. Right. Can you help us understand that? Yeah, I get really excited, sorry. When we talk about this early form of Christianity before it was could have at. It wasn't cofide until the fourth century. So that's important to understand so there are hundreds of years where there's a Christianity that's being practiced that so radical and threatening to the Roman Empire and the idea of. Existence being ranked according to a hierarchy so educated Roman born men are at the top, and then it. There's all different layers in positions of power but women. Prostitutes slaves would be down there at the bottom meaning, having no rights, and not having a sense of. Being able to have autonomy and voice and power themselves so Mary Magdalene would. Be Way down there at the bottom, not because she was a prostitute because she was a woman, women didn't have any rights or own property so. This form this early form of Christianity. If we re introduced scripture like the Gospel of Mary Magdalene like the Gospel of Philip, which names Mary as Kreis companion. The Greek word is Kono's, and that word can be translated as partner, beloved or companion, so the gospel of Philip names. Miriam of Magdala Mary Magdalene as the companion of Christ
Turkey reconverts Istanbul's Hagia Sophia museum into a mosque
"Eight acres court is expected to announce today that the conversion of Istanbul's world-famous argue severe into a museum almost ninety years ago, it was awful. The decision would pave the way for the building's Restoration Mosque and we'll represent a victory of sorts for president recipe type one, but it may cause anger elsewhere, including in the Kremlin and UNESCO HQ, joining us on the line now is Hannah Lucinda Smith is stumble correspondent of the. Times Hello Hannigan off new thanks for being with US I. Guess this was what we had perhaps predicted nevertheless. Oh, that's not gonNA. Stop a number of people being pretty disappointed with the outcome. Yeah well. Absolutely I mean affair is such a symbol, not just in Turkey or not just in the region in the whole world at points it was built in the sixth century. It was the biggest cathedral in the world. It was the seat of eastern Crescenzi for more than a Millennium and then it's really been kind of the symbol of the struggle for the soul of Istanbul. I guess when the autumns took control of the city in fourteen, fifty three, they converse into a mosque, and then when Kemal Ataturk the first president of the secular republic. Took over the country he then. Signed an order basically deconsecrated intending into museum in nine, hundred thirty four, and that's the status it. It's hard since then, but it is such a powerful symbol for Muslims. Christians and also for the Turks who are really bondage this idea of a second second they sit. It's kind of one of the ultimate symbols of their secular country. Just when you're out, and about as it sounds like you are indeed right now, is this one of these things where people are talking about it, and it's upsetting people, or is it one of these strange things? Actually seems to be much more stark much more controversial through the prism of I'm in London or etc. People looking on from Moscow which maybe we'll come to in a in a minute it does it excise people out in about. March she stood in the courtyard. Safia right now. It is a few Tori style. It's actually quite quite mean that's mostly because of the current virus pandemic coming normally at this time of year that would be crowded with tourists actually took his most visited tourist attraction, but I think the interesting thing. Is that inside Turkey this debate? That's not new. It's been going on for a couple. Couple, of decades, it's a question that sort of comes around quite six. In fact, you know I've I've been in Turkey for seven years. Now is the ton. This is come up in my time here and so there is this of feeling of fatigue I you know this is just the same policy policy again but I think it's undeniable, the for certain positive the Paul is. Very, much behind prison on the move is part of the society would be seen as. A big victory pick symbolic victory, but I think in terms of the kind of. The opposition to it. A lot of that comes from outside country. As you mentioned that the star obviously the Greek government's in holy. They still see Istanbul Constantinople. This is the as the center of Greek Orthodox also the Russian Orthodox Patriarch earlier this week, voiced his objection and of course UNESCO Ted. This is a world heritage sites listed by UNESCO. That's partly because of the The mosaics that were uncovered once this was ten years. In the nineteen th that is. On. The big questions is of course. If this is ten back into a mosque, what will happen to those mosaics depict Christ pizza version married picked him of the apostles. You know seen in, Islam, FIT Is is not allowed inside mosques. So this is the kind of places where the real objections are coming from, but it's quite interesting I'm you know it's? Really doesn't feel like much. Is happening at the moment here high? Sophie, let's see. We got the announcement in June a couple of hours. That's what we're expecting so. Possibly something will happen after that, but it's kind of. Yeah. It's still the same very peaceful, very unique. Is indeed sort of an eerie call just on some of those other international stakeholders. And he'll be watching on. We mentioned already you mentioned the Russian. Orthodox Patriarch of course. What about the relationship mean does this tell us anything about the relationship between assemble in Moscow more broadly, maybe more politically because there's various other sort of proxy disagreements agreements. There's other places Libya that seemed to sort of muddy. The waters is this. Does this need to be to be viewed in that context in your view? Show, I think the relationship with Russia is actually the one thing that might give president or pause for thought on this now what we see as I said before the Greeks are. Very opposed to this the US. State Department might POMPEII stems as well, but you know that's kind of old hat fred when he doesn't really care about. Stoking rows with Greece and with the US. Because he's got huge amounts of disagreements with those countries anyway, but when it comes to Russia, it's been quite an interesting situation in Russia. Turkey for the past five years on one level as you say in Libya also in Syria they're. Backing opposing forces, but at the same time, the personal relationship between two President Putin has gone incredibly close, and in other ways. Russia has been backing sick. I guess trying to woo. Tick to a certain extent away from its more traditional allies in the West, so we've seen for example side of the one hundred defense system. From Russia Turkey we've seen many many pets meetings in about trade and defense mutual security between. One impeach him now. The question is if this. Decision goes ahead and the conversion goes ahead then how much opposition will come from from the Kremlin? Clearly, the Patriarch Russian Orthodox Patriarch. Expressed his opposition. That's to be expected, but we also know that religion plays a big part in Russian. Politics today, so would it. Would it carry on further? The featured does it were? Would President Putin be the next person's kind of expresses displeasure, and how would that affect the relationship Tweeden's? I stopped really great to speak to you and thanks for reporting for us right from the scene of this Hannah Lucinda Smith In estan standard joining us on the briefing Monaco Twenty Four.
How Does Your Garden Grow, with Nooks and Crannies
"Wants neglected plot on their recently inherited estate. The Duchess of Northumberland undertook to make special garden inspired by a trip to the MEDICI estates in Italy.

Hello Bore Blue Ensign, flowers and narcissus. It's called the annick poison garden. Because like the sign at the front gate, says do not touch any of these plants. These plants can kill you. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. We hardly need to say that mankind has been growing food for a longtime. The earliest domesticated plants and horticulture that we have evidence of thus far date to nine thousand B C e in the teen corridor the that runs from the Dead Sea to the Damascus basin. The people there planted grains legumes using sticks to dig in the dirt. The first written reference to gardening dates back soumare in lower Mesopotamia. King Gilgamesh mentioned that his city or ACC was one third gardens. Though. He probably meant orchards as much as anything else. From Egypt. We have paintings and models gardeners at work, and you can still see the remains of the Temple Gardens at Karnak. Or you can head over to Iran to see the layout and information channels of garden that was created twenty five hundred years ago. For the oldest garden we can find in Europe had over to Greece. Were Gardens both practical and ornamental were being put in by seven thousand vce two thousand years before the Egyptians. The creation of a new science botany, the study of plants meant that gardens became a place of learning even in the ancient world gardens could be an aesthetic choice as well as a practical one. Evidence suggests that the idea originated in Persia with Darius the great and his Paradise Garden beginning a tradition of walled in garden spaces. Lavish Villa Gardens in the Roman Empire Spread East China and Japan where Aristocratic Gardens featured miniaturized and simulated landscapes, like rock, gardens and waterfalls. Natural symbolized power and religious thought. Zen Gardens appeared and emphasized the concept of using the garden for reflection to increase. Want Wisdom. The most famous garden in the ancient world is undoubtedly the hanging gardens of Babylon. According to Legend in the sixth century BC. King Nebuchadnezzar a name that is never not fun to say. Bill to the gardens for his wife, a modest to ensure that she didn't become homesick for her birthplace of Medina near the Caspian Sea. But we don't get details of the garden from Nebuchadnezzar himself. Which is odd considering that he recorded his many other accomplishments in cuneiform, but there's no mention of the gardens. Several, ancient Roman and Greek writers wrote about the garden though. Some scholars argue that the gardens were actually built by an Assyrian Queen or the King of Niniveh. We don't know for sure because despite the gardens being one of the seven wonders of the world. We can't find it to study it. It's believed to have been destroyed by an earthquake in the first century C E. So why were they called? The hanging gardens were the garden beds suspended. was everything planted in hanging baskets? Bonus fact, the largest hanging basket planter in the world is on the side of the hotel. Indigo in the Paddington Section of London. It measures ten by twenty feet or three by six meters and weighs upwards of half a tonne. Now the hanging gardens didn't really hang so much as they over Hong or draped and their defense, the draping garden doesn't sound nearly as appealing. Accepting the premise that some royal or another wanted to build a royalty grand garden in the desert, it was going to take careful planning and serious engineering to pull that off. The structure was a cigarette or a stepped pyramid with walls between twenty and seventy five feet high, depending on which ancient account you're reading. So picture a walled city in the desert.

"A lot of playing board games these days and that's pretty fitting human making board games for a long time like a long longtime seven thousand years or more for a bit of historical context. We stopped hunter-gathering and settled down to be farmers about ten thousand years ago rather than try to cram seven thousand years in six occupied continents worth of history into a half hour podcast. I'll hit some of the high points. Especially the less well-known once the earliest gaming pieces ever found are forty nine. Small carved painted stones found a five thousand year old burial mound in southeast Turkey. Similar pieces have been found in Syria and Iraq and seemed to point devoid games originating in the Fertile Crescent. You remember the Fertile Crescent from the first week of world history class. It's the same region discovered alcohol invented papyrus and made calendars all of which you need. If you're hosting game night other early dice games were created by painting a single side of a flat. Stick these sticks would be tossed at once and that would be your role Mesopotamia. Dice were made from a variety of materials including carved knuckle bones would painted stones and turtle shells. No wonder folks used to say roll them bones dice from the Roman era. Looks like the six sided die. We use today though. Some of them had their corners. Cut off to be able to reach a higher number not unlike dungeons and dragons dice. Imagine excavating a distant Roman out host and finding a D twenty serious cricket board games became popular among the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. And that shouldn't surprise. That board games were a bigger part of life for upper class people since they have both money for entertainment and time to play. Even before the first dynasty Egypt loved a game called Senate. It's even seen on. The walls of tombs and copies of the game are buried with noble people. Ancient Egyptians were strong believers in the concept of fate. And that your luck in the game of Senate meant that you were under the protection of the major gods of the Pantheon raw toe to toe Cyrus. The significance of the game is clear. The game play not as clear. Historians have made educated guesses as to the rules more on that later and Board Game. Companies have used those guesses as a jumping off place to make modern versions. Four Games also became tied into religious beliefs. One such game was Mahan played around three thousand. B C e Mahan was a protective God depicted as a snake with coils around the Sun God raw during his journey through the night the game and the God became intertwined. Tim Kendall and ancient Egyptian historian believes that it's not possible to know for sure with the information we have available whether the game was inspired by an existing deity or the Deity was inspired by the game. Many people think backgammon is the longest plate of all the board games with evidence that it existed around two thousand B C but there is an extant game. That is a little bit older. Relatively speaking the royal game of for the game gets its name from being found in the royal tombs of in Iraq. There was also a set found in Pharaoh. Tutankhamun tune the game. Play is simple but very familiar. You're trying to get all of your pieces around the board first thumping off your opponent's pieces along the way again. Proving there's nothing new under the Sun. The royal game of herb was played with four sided or tetrahedral dice. A D Four for the tabletop games out there. Even though the game's over four thousand years old amazingly we found a copy of the rules Irving Finkel the British museum deciphered cuneiform tablet and discovered. It was the rules for the Royal Game of Earth. He then saw a photograph of a nearly identical board game being played in modern India. That makes the Royal Game of Earth. The longest played game in history and there is a great video of Irving Finkel. Who has ever so pleasantly mad teaching youtuber or Tom Scott how to play Lincoln the show notes and a little clip right here. Because I just couldn't help myself. All sorts of evidence has come to live so that we know how this game was played and we can play it now with a great deal of excitement. Sometimes it brings out violence. Come Times it brings out savagery. I have to say that this so we've decided to bring in a member of the public. I can't remember the name on Tom. Scott I make videos about science technology in the world. Who's never paid this game before? I have never played this game before. I'm Gandhi swift overview of the walls.

Which is where the name go comes from another ancient game which is still out there and a favourite of nearly every household in my family is the African game of Mangala in our modern parlance. Munkala refers to a specific game. But the name actually belongs to an entire genre of games a genre eight hundred traditional games strong. This family of Board Games is played around. The world is referred to as Sewing Games S. O. W. I N. G. Devotes the way that you pick up and drop the stones playing pieces like you were sowing seeds in the ground. The word Mukalla comes from the Arabic Nicola to move most one college games share a common structure where each player has gained pieces in divots on the board and moves them to capture their opponent's pieces leading them to also be called count and capture games. The boards can be wooden clay even just little holes in the dirt playing pieces of everything from seeds. Stones shells anything near at hand that fits in the holes. The earliest evidence of the game are fragments of pottery. Board found in Eritrea dated to the sixth century CE. Though if the games were played with seeds on wooden boards or pebbles in divots in the dirt the game could be even older.

Viking refers to the raids undertaken by a small portion of the population themselves called Viking US meaning kings table noth- Atoll was a war strategy game. The kings objective was to escape to the edge of the board while the opponents laurel objective was to capture him. The attacking force had the natural advantage at the start of each game. Perhaps mimicking a cultural mindset of a small group being victorious against a larger force like say a few boats full of Viking attacks against the army of an English King Scandinavians spread the game to Ireland Britain and Wales through. Let's call it. Unexpected cultural exchange archaeologists have also discovered that it was popular as far to the east as Ukraine.
Roman Forum find could be shrine to Rome's founder, Romulus
"Archaeologists excavating the Roman forum have discovered an underground shrine dedicated to Romulus the founder of Rome the monument includes an underground chamber with a fifty five inch high star cop I guess and what appears to be an altar and it dates from the sixth century BC the forum was the center of public life in ancient Rome the location of the monument to Romulus is near the main complex of public buildings which include the Senate and the rostrum the speaker's podium where all important
The Monoliths of Lalibela
"Going to be discussing a particular of example of construction. That is really just as amazing as you know. Making all these giant blocks bringing them together and building the pyramid but This particular example is also going to buck the traditional steps that we've discussed here and we're going to be looking at century's old Christian temples in Ethiopia that were we're not built from blocks of stone that were quarried over here and then brought together and then assembled into a building. No these are free reese standing monolithic churches that are each hewn from the solid. Red Volcanic Goria under laid by dark gray a basalt standing tall in the quarries from which they were sculpted so basically these were hewn out of solid stone. The quarry becomes the courtyard. Yeah it's a building that is not built but released from the earth. subtractive manufacturing of Marvel's it it is. It is amazing. I was not familiar with these until just last week when I was looking around for an episode For us to do and I was initially thought. Oh why don't we do Petra the the ruins in Jordan you know with the where the architecture is built into the side of this this kind of like ravine a situation right if you think you've never seen these these rock hewn Buildings you probably have their featured for example in Indiana Jones and the last crusade the show up in several several movies pet petro specifically in this case right so so is the no. Petro would be a good Episode started looking roundabout indie Petras fascinating. Perhaps we'll come back back to it but then I I was just looking around at other. Examples of of buildings had been hewn from stone. And then these just really stood out as the prime prime example like the most extreme example of what you could do with subtractive manufacturing of an entire building to bill to construct a building by not even constructing it by just carving away at solid stone until it is there with no need for bricks or mortar or would or nails or any of this architecture. Protect sure as sculpture. Yeah so where will you find these will you will find them. In lally Bella Ethiopia Ethiopia is of course the nation in eastern in Africa and they stood there at least since the late twelfth century CE though probably get into some of the dating in greater detail later later but I just a few notes about Ethiopia. In general modern Ethiopia is the most populous landlocked country in the world and the second most populous African nation after Nigeria Copa is also considered one of only two African nations never to be subjected to Long Term European colonization position the other being Liberia and to be more specific it was it was never it was never call an is during the nineteenth century period where so much of Africa was though it was occupied by Italy of during the Second World War but not not long enough for there to be like true lasting cultural change because it still throughout its history. It certainly came into contact with foreign ideas and influences. And we'll be discussing a major one here today because because one of the things you noticed about Is that it's majority. Religion is the Ethiopian Orthodox Taylor Hato church what's known as an Oriental Orthodox Christian church and it dates back many centuries. There's also a sizable Islamic population in Ethiopia followed in popularity by Protestants traditional faiths Catholicism and Judaism. Now of course there are other fascinating things about Ethiopia's well for instance. Ethiopian cuisine has certainly traveled well around the world. I think thing is widely believed to be the origin. Place of coffee is coffee and Okra is well. I was I chatted with Anne of our fellow. PODCAST here in the Atlanta offices saver and I said Hey. Have you guys done anything. I need the OPN cuisine because we could mention on the podcast and they said that had not yet though they both love the food but they have done an episode Okra and they've done an episode on coffee that get into those origins and say those are two of my favorite plant based foods. Are you an ochre fan or would you one of those people who thinks that slimy. Oh I love Okra and I love it because it is slimy especially in Gumbo. Does it acts as a thickening agent so I I want there to be Okra present in media dish buses great. It's great fried. It's great escape pickled Yeah I'm an Okra Fan for sure. Okay we're on the same page. I like all those ways to. I also really like Okra in Indian food. Yeah it goes really good with Indian spices who I had it in Indian food before but maybe not recently enough for it to really struck a chord. I'll have to seek it out. There is a restaurant here in town. That made a really amazing curried Okra and then then they went out of business. All right well. Let's talk in greater detail tale about Ethiopian Christianity. Then because since we're focusing in on Old Christian temples that were carved out of the ground in Ethiopia. We should in describe how Christianity came to East Africa. Sure So I was looking at a scientific paper that will make a brief reference to later in the episode and the authors of this paper Ethiopian scientists AGFA Wilson S Rot. And you did. I do They point out in the background. Section of the paper that the broader tradition of rock hewn churches in Ethiopia is historically associated with the coming of a group of figures known. Is the nine saints who were alleged to have journeyed from Egypt and Syria during the late fifth and early sixth centuries to preach the gospel of Christianity in Ethiopia Propia and more specifically to spread and promote the monastic lifestyle. So I was digging into this claim I wanted to learn more about the nine saints and this eventually led me down a path where I found a really awesome entry about Ethiopian Christianity in the monastic tradition. In a book called the encyclopedia the of Monasticism edited by this story and Will Johnston with this specific entry on Ethiopian Monastic Christianity written by the Ethiopian American philology Lalla Gist getachew highly. I was reading this as well. And it is quite Quite a fascinating entry. I just had no idea just how imported the monastic tradition was for just Ethiopian. Culture General. Yeah Yeah so highly writes that Due to the proximity of Ethiopia to the Middle East some Christianity entity probably began to spread their organically as soon as the religion was founded but highly also claims that Ethiopian Christianity is a form of the religion. That's it's kind of uniquely shaped by monks and monastic influences. So what exactly would that mean well. Monasticism is the tradition we associate with with monks and nuns. It's the strain of faith that calls for a radical lifestyle of religious devotion often including things like vows of poverty or vows of chastity or vows of silence or fasting General seclusion from secular life. As you know the priest or preacher within the religion might usually live among the society preaching the faith meanwhile the monk shakes in some way to live outside the society rejecting many of the comforts and pleasures of dorm life making their day to day habits and living conditions themselves kind of a radical demonstration of

Why Do Some People Eat Dirt?
"Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Vogel. Von here in gas stations and flea markets. All around the southeastern United States, you can find packets or boxes containing crumbles whiteclay in Kenya. You can buy reddish dirt on the street formed into little pellets that look like baby carrots in Uganda. You can buy Yankee doodle brands dirt at the grocery store, a website called earth's. Klay store sells Klay from all over the world and ships them right to your home. But what are you supposed to do with it? When it gets to you. Well, you eat it. You might have a vague sense that you've heard of people eating dirt before pregnant women. Maybe pica is the overarching term for craving and eating things that are not food in the sixth century, see the physician Flavius Asia's noticed people sticking nonfood items in their mouths the way that Magpies pica in Latin pick up random objects in their beaks e figured these people had entirely indiscriminate appetites for just any old thing and termed the behavior after the magpie. It turns out pica is kind of misnomer because pica cravings are actually very specific though. According to the diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders or DSM. It includes a range of behaviors some people crave paperclips, batteries or coins. These potentially dangerous cravings are considered by the DSM to be actual disorders. But pica can also include cravings for Ross starch that's amylase g ice, that's pathogen and dirt. That's geology. Geology is one form of pica found an almost every country in the world. We spoke with Sarah young assistant, professor in the department of anthropology at Northwestern University. She said I was surprised when I first saw it. I was studying pregnant women nog Raphy in Zanzibar. And I asked a woman what she ate when she's pregnant, and incidentally, she said every day, I take earth from this wall and eat it. I was just learning. Sahelian was pretty good at it. But I really didn't think I was understanding correctly. My research assistant was like, yeah. You heard right. Young ended up writing her PHD dissertation on geology and winning the Margaret Mead award in twenty thirteen for her book craving earth, which detailed her research about geology practices worldwide in her research. Young tracked down medical literature historical texts research on animal behavior soil science in parasitology and came to the conclusion that there are four possible explanations. As to why people eat dirt. The most common longest running take on geology is that there's no good reason for it that it's a pathology. It's an aspirin behavior of some unknown origin, young explained, the racism sexism and classism behind that simplistic, take, quote, it's the women they know not what they do explanation. It was basically white men writing about this for the past few hundred years, and it was dismissed as abberant we can refute this. There are so many species of animals that go to great risk to get clan. Charcoal like the coldest monkey that steals charcoal from villagers, but even so we know very little about geology because for centuries. Scientists were stubbornly lacking curiosity about it. When scientists did start looking into it, the first hypothesis they came up with to explain why hundreds of thousands of people worldwide craven eat dirt is that. There must be something useful in the clay micronutrients of some kind young said the mother nature's multivitamin explanation is a really intuitive one. But. Fortunately, it doesn't really shake out for starters. Although the Klay her study participants in Zanzibar were eating was tinged with red indicating iron content investigations into whether that iron could be absorbed and used by the body came up empty, plus according to young people generally prefer whiter Klay. If you give geologist to the option of snacking on Georgia, white Kaelin or the reddish clay found on men's bar. They'll almost always pick the white Kaelin, which does not contain iron. So we turn to another hypothesis could hurt provide protection from germs the explanation that eating dirt somehow an immune system boost might not make sense on the surface. After all we're supposed to stay away from dirt wash our hands cleaner, close take off our shoes when we enter the house, but clay face masks can draw germs and oils and dead cells from your skin, and they're made of dirt. Right. According to young eating clay might collect stuff inside of the gut similar to how a mud mask collect stuff from your face. But why would somebody need an intestinal mud mask? The answer is protection from pathogens and harmful compounds many harmful microorganisms and compounds can enter your body via the things you eat. You digest the food and it's absorbed through the wall of your intestine and into your bloodstream, but lots of potentially harmful stuff can get to his in this way to Klay may stimulate the mucous membranes on the surface of your guts to create more mucus, thus forming a sort of protective barrier against those pathogens and compounds young said, it can also bind with whatever harmful thing you're eating for example, in the Andes people eat wild potatoes, which contain these toxic chemicals called glencoe alkaloids. But after they dip the potatoes in clay, they become safe to eat. But while eating clay might protect from pathogens and harmful chemicals, which is especially important in pregnant women. There's something of Goldilocks principle at play here. You want to shield yourself from the harmful stuff, but you also don't want to protect yourself from the nutrients you need, for example, if you eat a steak that's full of both bioavailable iron and pathogens. But you eat clay at the same time. The iron could also become bound by the clay and wouldn't be absorbed by your gut, although the claim might be protecting you from pathogens to some extent. It's also preventing you from absorbing the nutrients the fourth hypothesis for why people eat dirt or clay is that it might help nausea vomiting and diarrhea by coating stomach after all a number of anti-diarrhea treatments. Have Kaylynn in them. Kaelin puts the KO in kopech tape. Though, the reasons for geology are still rather mysterious young stresses that it's far more common than we realize partially because of those old stigmas against it. Young said people don't like to talk about it or admit it when I'm doing ethnic, graphic interviews. I always ask how much earth do eat instead of do you eat earth? Because so many people have sworn they don't eat it. And later told me that they do, but they lied because I didn't want you to think I was

Hey, brain stuff. Lauren Bogle bond here. An unsolved mystery can drive people crazy and the fate of the first English settlers ever to establish a colony in the new world ruin oak is a puzzle that will probably never be entirely solved. But it doesn't keep people from trying in July. Fifteen eighty seven a ship carrying ninety men. Seventeen women and eleven children landed on Roanoke island on the Outer Banks of modern day North Carolina a year before when these site was discovered. Fifteen men had volunteered to stay and hold down the proverbial fort, but they were nowhere to be found. So the one hundred and eighteen colonists disembarked and said about carbon colony out of the wilderness. There's much excitement when Eleanor dare the daughter of leader John White gave birth to the first English baby. Born in the new world and named her Virginia after time John White left, the settlers to return to England telling them he'd be back within the year with fresh supplies. However, England's war with Spain slowed the process considerably, and nobody was able to check on the settlement again. Until fifteen ninety when white returned his daughter granddaughter and everyone else was gone. They had dismantled the buildings carved the word Kroto in into a tree. The name of the friendly native American tribe on a nearby island and vanished. There was no sign of the cross white had told them to carve on a tree if they had left under duress. A frankly white didn't look very hard for his daughter and granddaughter before heading back to England for centuries. The story of the lost colony of Roanoke seemed pretty cut and dried to most historians. The settlers went to live with a Kroto and tribe. Whether they stayed there not nobody could say the thing they could say is that no definitive sign of any of the one hundred eighteen colonists was ever found despite rumors in the later established Jamestown colony of massacres and men wearing European clothes deep in the wilderness. No definitive sign that is until more than three centuries later when in nineteen thirty seven a produce dealer from California named L E Helmand showed up at Emory University in Atlanta with a stone. He found while hunting hickory nuts and recently cleared, North Carolina swamp, some fifty miles or eighty kilometers inland of Roanoke island. It was inscribed with a message. He wanted the experts at Emory to decipher turns out, the carved stone told story allegedly written by whites daughter Eleanor. The colonists. Endured two years of only misery and war after her father left for England ending with half. The settlers killed in armed combat and many of the others, including eleanor's husband daughter, slaughtered when a spiritual leader of the tribe. They lived with warned that the presence of the English. Settlers was angering the spirits, according to the stone only six men and one woman escaped. The stone was found to be offended by the experts at the time. It seems legitimate and better still it satisfied. Everyone's thirst foreclosure around to this dusty old riddle the story captured the imagination of the entire country and Emory professor Haywood J Pearce junior published a paper describing the stone in the refutable journal of southern history in nineteen thirty eight. But soon the plausibility of the stone came into question, we spoke with John Bence archivist at the rose library at Emory University. He said Emory became suspicious of Hammond after some professors and administrators traveled with him to Eden to North Carolina where he found the stone. The search for the original location of the stone was fruitless this attitude. The growing list of details about Hammond's discovery that we're hard to corroborate Emory had someone in California look into Hammond, but couldn't find much more than an address after Pierce and his father another academic paid him. And for the first stone and offered a five hundred dollar reward for any additional stones people might find. You can imagine. How many dare stones came out of the woodwork the pierces paid a man named Bill Eberhardt a stonecutter from Fulton County Georgia two thousand dollars for forty two forgeries. He brought them these stones had Eleanor marrying a Cherokee chief giving birth to another daughter named Agnes and eventually dying in a cave in Georgia. In April of nineteen forty one these Saturday Evening Post ran an expose on. The dare stones dismissing them all as forgeries citing an acronym. Stick language, and consistency of spelling that was unheard of at the time the Pierce's career suffered and the dare stones were stuffed in a basement at the father's university an embarrassment to everyone involved, but every so often academic interest turns again to the show on Riverstone. The original dare stone found by him. And in that North Carolina swamp, it's made of different rock than the others. A bright white quartzite interior and dark exterior that would have made a good choice for Eleanor dares missive to her father and in the nineteen thirties. The patina on the stone would have been difficult to chemically replicate. In addition. It doesn't contain the anachronistic language of the other stones some experts have determined. The only problem might be an Eleanor dares. Sign off the initials e WD, which would not have been typical signature in these sixth century. Many experts still dismissed the town Riverstone as an obvious phony. But it's possible that new research into Lisbeth in a pig Raphy chemical analysis and other rocket scriptures of the time period.
