So I've spent all of the last 10 minutes creating this map of countries whence historically significant empires/civilizations etc. formed throughout history.
For example, Western Europe has the colonial empires. Saudi Arabia has Islam and the subsequent expansion of it. Iran/Iraq/Egypt don't need explanation. Pakistan and India have the Indus civilization, India has many more, etc. I chose to include the Incas and Aztecs/Mayas, not because they were historically significant, but because they managed to develop fairly impressive civilizations in total isolation,...

Looks accurate enough, though I'd argue it's hard to agree on whether you should Highlight a country according to whether it inherited the name of the ancient empire, the demographic most closely resembles that of the ancient empire, or highlight instead the geographical area that made up the beginnings of the empire.
The grammatical and syntactical structure of your question already begs the question. What "is" truth assumes that truth is a substantive. Furthermore, you also presuppose the meaning of "is-ness." So before we ask the question of what is truth, we must answer the question of Being.
>>90963 England remains in the 'Scandinavian' sphere but is too powerful for any other major 'Viking' invasions. There is still probably an influx of castle building and Romanesque architecture in the late 11th century, though obviously on a smaller scale. Recent archaeology suggests several motte-and-bailey castles (mostly on the Welsh Marches) that were previously assumed to be Norman may come from the reign of Edward the Confessor. Other than that hard to say really, it depends on how stable the Godwinsson dynasty proves itself to be. This has wider implications on the continent as well, especially for France depending on how bad a state the Normans are left in
>>90963 Sweyn (?) Or some other northman threat attacks and takes advantage of Anglo Saxon weakness. William had to fight (well scare) them off in the north soon after he conquered. The Normans were strong enough to keep their win, otherwise the island keeps trading hands.
Does /his/ think the British Empire could have survived as a slightly stronger and more unified version of the Commonwealth of Nations if they had adopted a federalization program, focusing on a strong economic bloc and granting home rule rather than making things worse through crackdowns on things like Indian independence
>>90090 There had been that plan to turn the whole deal into a Federation of sorts. The problem really was WW1 more than anything, since its economic strain and resulting WW2 made it unfeasible to maintain a lot of the colonies, many of which didn't make much money to begin with.
If they had gone federal, I'd expect a good deal of the english majority territories would remain together, but distance would likely have made even that a bit unfeasible. It's hard to say.
>>90331 >The problem really was WW1 more than anything
This too, becuase of WWI the Irish home rule bill which had been approved was delayed, and being a bunch of a impatient manchildren the Irish Republicans decided to try and get it during the war through force
The biggest military conflict the south american conflict ever witnessed, it's left from 250000 to 500000 dead.
It has ruined a country ended a monarchy and begun the unification of a nation. It made villains and heroes and left wounds that remain open even after 150 years. It's a conflict that doesn't have as much represantation in the media as it's deserves.
hi there /his/syfits, the agricultural revolution happened in a bunch of different areas independently, writing was invented at least three times etc etc, why didn't the industrial revolution happen before it actually did? can you think of any near misses? china had quite some production line like processes happening before europe, the greeks had a primitive steam engine made by hero of alexandria, you guys must be able to think of others.
What could be the historical or sociological reason for the amazing increase in the death rate of whites aged 45-54? Never once in history has a group suffered such a shared downtick n survivability It won't let me post the graphs but they are shocking, aids in the 1980s style mortality https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/a-group-of-middle-aged-american-whites-is-dying-at-a-startling-rate/2015/11/02/47a63098-8172-11e5-8ba6-cec48b74b2a7_story.html
>>89745 Thought of that. Article blames the heroin epidemic as a contributing factor along with ending career goals and lower standard of living from competition from overseas slave labor. Anomie would be closer, what the Japanese feel today. That suicide rate is shocking so is the death rate from heroin among upper class young whites.
Twinkish bottom gays in positions of power in history. Post them.
I'll start: Elagabalus, a femboy slut elevated to Emperor. >The Augustan History claims that he also married a man named Zoticus, an athlete from Smyrna, in a public ceremony at Rome. Cassius Dio reported that Elagabalus would paint his eyes, epilate his hair and wear wigs before prostituting himself in taverns, brothels,and even in the imperial palace:
>>89309 This book specifically or the series as a whole? Series as a whole was nice, and this book was pretty interesting. Actually said "You may feel sorry for the Incas and the Aztecs being conquered by invaders, but how do you think THEY became empires? THEY CONQUERED AND INVADED!" instead of saying "WAAAA POOR NATIVE AMERICANS WHITE PEOPLE ARE SUCH BULLIES!" Terry Deary's a pretty nice writer, and Mark Brown's illustrations are ok, if a bit simplistic.
>>89361 I feel like it can be good for casual reading as well. I like sitting down in a restaurant while eating a nice meal and reading about toad eaters and victorian era begging, involving eating rotten bread. Really works up an appetite.
The city of Jerusalem was called the city of peace, however, it has been quite to the contrary for the past 4,000 years; it has been defined by war and religious strife and political anarchy. The Jews, Christians and Muslims have fought bitter wars over the right to claim ownership and custodial entitlement to Mount Moriah. All three Abrahamic faiths have assembled theological and dogmatic authenticity to explaining why King Solomon’s Temple personifies the Jewish, Christian, and/or Islamic religious worldview.
King Solomon's Temple was built on Mount Moriah in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
