The Kailash or Kailasanatha temple is one of the largest rock-cut ancient Hindu temples located in Ellora, Maharashtra, India. A megalith carved out of one single rock, it is considered one of the most remarkable cave temples in India because of its size, architecture and sculptural treatment.
The Kailasanatha temple (Cave 16) is one of the 32 cave temples and monasteries known collectively as the Ellora Caves. Its construction is generally attributed to the 8th century Rashtrakuta king Krishna I in 756-773 CE. The temple architecture shows traces of Pallava and Chalukya styles.

And now for something completely different.

Apparently if trash sits out long enough, it magically transforms into historic artifacts. Sorry, but to me this still looks like litter.

In honor of Memorial Day coming up next week we thought we'd test everyone's plaque knowledge. In which of the three Plainville Cemeteries is this marker honoring those who served "our country with honor and valor" located? Answer tonight!

I always love finding beads. This is a round drawn bead, Navy Blue in color, with a white center. The ridges on the outside are where stripes of white glass once were. In its original state this would have been a blue and white striped bead.

Most of the european stone tools we find end up being gun flints so It was nice to have something a little different in these whetstone fragments. Some of the knife fragments we've found may have once been sharpened by this very stone.

Value of 1748 Compagnie des Indes Occidentales Medal.The Compagnie Des Indies was a remnant of the sour schemes of John Law who successfully cheated many out of investing in the New World. This medal displays the Compagnie Des Indies arms, which portrays two America Indigenous supporting a shield on which is a palm tree. Over the shield is crown. Around the image, the legend translates “He protects and feeds” and in exergue, “1748”. The reverse displays a crowned shield that displays a ship. The shield is surrounded by leaves and twelve knots. The legend possibly translates to, “The arms of the city of Nantes”.Now ask yourself why are the indigenous Americans representing the sixth largest city in France
The people are the Gaulish people,and also mentioned in Ptolemy's Geography..The obverse and reverse text read as follows: Protegit et Pascit; 1748; D.V. | and | De La Mairie De Mr. Bellabre Prt. Et Senl Du Prl De Nantes .

The Lebombo and The Ishango........ Earliest Use of Measuring and Mathematics in the World.....The Lebombo and The Ishango

Africa is home to the world’s earliest known use of measuring and advanced mathematics. The oldest mathematical instrument ever discovered is the Lebombo bone, a baboon fibula found in the mountains of Swaziland, engraved with markings believed to have been used 35,000 years ago to tally the menstrual cycles (or simply as a measuring stick). The earliest known use of advanced mathematics, however, was discovered in the Great Lakes Region (present-day Uganda) and dates to at least 20,000 BC. The bone is now housed in the Museum of Natural Sciences in Brussels. 
The Close second is the Ishango Bone which also in Africa The artifact was first estimated to have originated between 9,000 BC and 6,500 BC.However, the dating of the site where it was discovered was re-evaluated, and it is now believed to be more than 20,000 years old. The Ishango bone’s inscriptions consist of all odd numbers with the left column containing prime numbers between 10 and 20 and the right column containing added and subtracted numbers–both columns add up to 60.Bone

Dear Folks,

Sorry that I haven't written sooner, but things with me have been in sort of a general mixup.  Just got out of the hospital yesterday and am plenty weak.  Caught a good case of dysentery and was running steady for twelve days; in fact I ran so steady that I'm 35 pounds off of my frame; you ought to see me now, skinny as a rail - but it's nothing to get worried about; a person has to adjust himself to the tropics.

I can't tell you where I am or what I have been doing; but I can tell you that I'm on an island in the Pacific!  We have our camp slung in a coconut grove - plenty of coconuts alright, but I don't have any use for them anymore

Chilling at the World War 2 Museum on the 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor. 75 years ago, today, at 0749 hours, Japanese air attack commander Mitsuo Fuchida began Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor, forever altering the course of the war and changing world history. By 1300 hours the following day, the United States had declared war. This post is dedicated to all the World War 2 veterans who are still alive today. Who knows how much longer they will be with us. It is important to honor them and consider there perspectives before their knowledge is lost forever. Preserving and remembering history is important because those who don't study history, are doomed to repeat. Those who do study history, however, are forced to watch helplessly as everybody else repeats it.
