Salvage ethnography/anthropology/pictures of shit you wouldn't think there'd be pictures of
Videos and artifacts welcome as well. I find looking at pictures like these gives a sense of truth and grit that no recreation, movie, or reenactment can achieve.
Tribal stuff can count also, but don't overdo it.
Chainmail was used in the caucuses until fairly recently. who would have thought?
Can war ever be truly justified?
>one of the most grimdark, gruesome torture devices
>was made up in 19th century
what the fuck was 19th century people problem anyway? A fuckton of myths can be traced back to them I hate this era so fucking much.
>reminder that this chick right here, the wet dream of many an American GI, left her film career to marry into the lineage of Fatima bint Muhammad (also the spawn of the Assassins), joined her husband (the son of an imam) in helping his horse racing enterprise, almost converted to Islam for him, then divorced him
Not hating at all, just musing on the surreal nature of the imamate.
Anyone here know anything beyond Wikipedia about these guys? Betwen film-star wives and the Assassins, they seem to have a pretty bad-ass history to tell you the truth.
I know she has Spanish descent.
I have a fetish for Latinas (me being half Puerto Rican probably factors in), and I always wondered why she looked so exceptionally sultry and sensual to me out of all the old pin-ups until I looked her up one day for kicks... there have been several times when I was particularly attracted to someone over others that should have been hotter than them and I later found out their parents or grandparents were of Spanish descent, so I think the fetish is inborn in by genes lol
>they seem to have a pretty bad-ass history to tell you the truth
Thats nothing compared to their predecessors whom ended up doing more damage to islam with their rampage across the ME than the crusaders and christfags ever wished they could have.
Why did the English style of suit become the worldwide accepted fashion for men?
Why is this stolen region so important to the French?
>Alsace was a part of France before Germany even existed.
Who is the most badass god in the greek mythology? My vote is for Ares, either him or one of his sons, Deimos or Phobos.

How did people in ancient times, middle ages and renaissance managed to not throw up or get PTSD? Melee combat was way more gruesome than in the movies as the bones show (pic related is from Battle of Towton) and I imagine seeing that sort of shit would take some toll on soldiers psyche.
They probably all had PTSD.
They were also probably abused as children according to our definition of child abuse.
They were harder, brutal people because you had to be hard and brutal to live. We've since been able to live a softer, gentler life.
Civilization can collapse again, after all.
Soldiers were much tougher given the brutal nature of how wars were fought back then. I'm sure they had their share of stress, but the mentality was you either man up fast or die faster.
There were no pussies back then, life was hard.
Here are the worst brutal torture methods the history. Check out the video for more information.
For alternative history - How to get a more diverse North America? So not all speak English, greater cultural differences between countries, etc.
WW2 kinda made it hard but there used to be newspapers in the Midwest in German. You can probably guess why that stopped. Makes you wonder if it would have stayed diverse
If England / Britain wasn't so aggressive for North America, there would probably be Swedish and Dutch speakers around New York, Dominant French Speakers in mid-America and all of Canada, and most of the south west and Florida would be Spanish.
look at more diverse portions of the americas for examples
>present in a lot of realist french works
>tired of not knowing what he did
Tell me /his/, what's all the fuss about? Which of his works should I read? Recommend books dealing with his work if you find that to be the most appropriate approach
Why didn't Spain win the Eighty Years' War?
Normans were a meme just like vikings they descended from.
nnifer Raff, a University of Kansas assistant professor of anthropology, said mitochondrial and genomic data that scientists have recovered don't support such an early wave of migrants.
"That hypothesis is only held by a very tiny minority of the archaeological community, but nevertheless it gets a lot of attention from people who have a casual interest in American archaeology," said Raff, lead author of a recent article in the journal PaleoAmerica on the issue....
