Pic related. I've heard some people say they looked like Aborigines, but according to Mungo Man, they didn't always look like that.
Would have been darker skinned, dark haired and dark eyes, but who knows if they had a wide or thin nose, round or almond eyes, thick or thin lips, straight or curly hair, etc.
In all likelihood they wouldn't look like any ethnic group around today.
Post the most perverted people in the history of history
Half of the last thread was complaining about my shitty OP image, so let's try again. We clarify what we mean by "God" when we ask the casual question "Do you believe in God?" By the end, it should not be a meaningless question.

To those who studied ancient history at university (whether just a degree, masters, PHD etc.): what was your capstone essay topic, or to those who pursued higher research, your major thesis topic(s)?
Or to those currently studying, what do you think your topic will be?
I did mine on the role of pets in the Roman household (focused primarily on Empire).
I don't study history but that's interesting, care to share some of your findings?
I'm not finished with a degree, but the last research project I did was a 250 word essay on the nature of emancipation in Brazil and the United States, and why the less democratic government was able to come to a more peaceful resolution.
Wasn't ancient history, but I did one on ratios of pilots and aircrew being trained vis a vis airframe production and why all the major powers "overproduced" planes that they didn't have people to actually fly.

Did people in the darg ages just forget how to craft great art and buildings?
Like wtf happened?
(Note: I am talking about NON-AMERICAN countries where you can major in Medicine, Dentistry, etc as an UNDERGRADUATE)
Some high school students who got extremely good grades in their finals (i.e. good enough for Medicine in non-American countries) decide to major in humanity programs History, Anthropology, etc. Why would they pick that?
It's a waste of their good marks to pick these programs which are easy to get into. Jobs related to these majors are hard to get. The world is not the same as a century ago where only a small proportion if the population can go to university so any university student can find a decent job after graduation. Sure, some graduates will get a well-paid, stable job, but the chances are that will not be you.
I guess you can also teach with a humanities degree, but teaching has its own terrible aspects where you have to deal with brats who don't care about their education. Really, every job has its own terrible aspects and work is not meant to be fun.
Getting into postgraduate Law is also competitive, risky, and a waste of time when these high school kids can just pick Law straight out of high school.
These people are just being picky. Really, all jobs become boring over time. Just memorise some shit at uni and find a well-paid, stable job afterwards. Work is not meant to be fun and it is more important that you can pay the bills in the future.
let's talk about based Alexios
Trying to read about the Napoleonic wars, but the scale and scope is much larger than anything else I've read about and I feel like I have some difficulty understanding everything. Or the dry text makes it boring. Anyone else ktf?
Read 1812 by Zamoyski. It's very accessible and enjoyable and gives a solid background to the Napoleonic period in the first few chapters as well as a study of some of the major personalities.
>Europe is now this
What do you know about this country?
>Brit conservatives hate him because he sold the Empire off for a song and because Gallipoli
>socialists hate him because of economic policies
>leftists hate him because muh colonalism muh racism
>Euro nationalists hate him because Dresden
>Americans don't like him because drunk banter
>the French hate him because he cucked CDG
>even Jews hate him because...

How did medieval armour piece together?
I want to understand more, so I can draw it. I've loe to depict a battle scene, bit I'll need an understanding of how the armour functions.
Also, a big breasted woman probably couldn't wear a standard breastplate, but wear a modified cuirass, I'd assume.
Nah, just asking in context to all the fantasy shit you see with the 'boobplate' which never would have been practical in a proper situation.
If a woman were to wear armour, I'd assume it would be a breastplate or cuirass same as anyone, but if her tits were too big, she'd be fucked on that department.
Can we talk about Carthage?
Dido, Hannibal and Elephants are all I know but it looks like an interesting empire.
