These huge stone heads date back many centuries. Almost as mysterious as the statues found on the island are the tablets covered in Rongorongo script which were found on the island. The language has yet to be deciphered by professionals across the globe and can prove
This time period lasted from the 5th century to the 15th century, it began with the fall of the roman empire and merged into the renaissance and the age of discovery. It covered the time from the fall of the empire to the rise of the ottoman empire, which is the time of castles, and peasants. The middle ages were also called the dark ages because this period of time had been lost to history. Many important records of this period have not survived, historians don’t know much about this time as it is. During this “dark age” there was no “pizazz”.
In total it had took him about sixteen years to complete the entire dome. This exquisite dome is an example of spezzatura based on the way on how effortless it looked to build a great masterpiece. During that time, the only problem was that no one knew how to construct or make a dome. Brunelleschi’s design for the dome was unique compared to other architecture designs, based on the innovations
The Colonists at Roanoke The mystery of Roanoke Island has baffled historians for over 400 years. One hundred twenty English Colonists disappeared with only one clue as to where they went; a single word: “Croatoan” carved into a post where they had previously been settled. In Cat Allard’s analyzation of the Roanoke mystery, he goes over several different, yet similar, theories of what might’ve happened to the Colonists. Allard focuses on two main arguments: The Colonists were massacred by natives, or they relocated and assimilated with a different tribe. Allard presents evidence on both sides all while staying neutral on the topic; This makes his article seem incomplete, and his conclusion weak.
When Mission Santa Clara was first built there was no college surrounding it, it was just a hut with residence building made up of upright logs and dirt roofs surrounding it. Due to multiple natural disasters Mission Santa Clara has had to be relocated and restored multiple times. Unlike the first two versions of the church, the structure was made out of white washed adobe. It was not until 1851, after the establishment of the fifth version of the church and multiple changes in ownership, was Santa Clara College built around the mission. In 1928 the church underwent its final restoration and constructed in its original one tower design with the outside adorned with wooden saints instead of painted designs.
With the combination of speed and precision only possible for a Master Enchanter, Aedifex began forming runes. Most he’d formed thousands of times... but there was one he’d never used before.

Essay In Tim Burton’s 1990 film called Edward Scissorhands, he explores how people who are different are treated in society. This film was set in the early 1960s. Edward and a few others are different such as peg and Esmeralda. Edward is no man, he was created by an inventor who lived up in an old abandoned mansion that was made of cobblestone. Edward lived in that mansion for most of his life, then he was brought down to the suburbs by peg when she found out that he was living alone up there.
One of the most inaccurate details of the movie was the fact that they used longbows, this is very ironic because the longbows didn’t even come out until the 15 century “The earliest known English reference to a "longbow" appears in the 15 century”. The second crusade was about 3 centuries after the longbows was invented. This being said, the movie was very inaccurate by putting in the longbows, making us assume that they were already made. People really didn’t even use the longbows until the past few years and now that they are becoming ice was not used until the early 1800s. So that being said it could not be possible for them to use ice in the second crusade being that the second crusade was in the 1100.
The great pyramid of Giza, was impossible to be built in just 22 years wherein the stones weighed thousands of tons. The stone was perfectly cut, transported, and placed. Many architects and engineers didn’t agree with those estimates because it’s impossible to build a pyramid that is perfectly arranged (Ranker, 2018). It’s amusing because the pyramid was built a thousand years ago and there are no
However even more amazing is the fact that the time question is not yet solved. The main reason to this is because the fossils were not encased neither were they close to any foreign datable material. Making this even more difficult no singular organisms were, found close to the fossils that could be, used for dating. Inability to date the fossils from surrounding objects leaves only two options both of which raise the issue of accuracy. The radiocarbon dating method which could be done on the fossils is only accurate in fossils which are 50,000 years or younger.
