Dolmen of Sorginetxe in Arrizala, Spain

Dolmen of Sorginetxe

その後、岡山のbangi abdulさんちへ遊びに行った後、香川のイサム・ノグチの記念館へも足をのばしたのだが、近くに「志度寺」を発見。讃岐の海女のお墓に参ることができた。

しかし志度寺は自然の侵食が凄すぎ、拝んでいる時も虫が沢山飛んできて、想いを馳せようがなかった。
境内はかなり広いと思うのだが、全体的に植物に埋もれた迷路みたいで、#重森三玲 が修復した庭の方で、およそお寺では聴くことができないような、ジャングルで何かが鳴いているような声がしていたので恐る恐る行ってみると、ものすごく高い二本の木のてっぺんで、大きな鳥が離れて互いを呼び合っているのだった。
鴛鴦(おしどり)という言葉を思い出した。

荒れているとは思ったけど、ある意味古代的な野生はあった。
「海女に呼ばれている」とかの自分がよくする感傷的な思考パターンを現実が壊してくれ、新鮮で面白かった。

Did you know that the Romans' favourite #snack went #extinct?

Besides honey & grape juice, meals in #Ancient #Rome were flavoured with imported dates from Judea (#Israel).

Date palm fronds were symbolic of #success - lawyers pinned them to their doors & generals wore special "toga palmata".

Judean dates were also shelf-stable & delicious.

Sadly, by the 19th c., they had vanished.

Except for a few 2000-year-old seeds.

They were successfully germinated in 2020.

This is a photo collage of six images showing the six seeds of the Judean date palm that researchers have successfully germinated in 2020.

The images show plant pots with seedlings ranging from about 30cm to a good metre in height.

The plants are green and have feathered palm fronds, with a considerable width.

New “treasures and secrets” have been revealed at the site of a #sunken #temple to god Amun in the #ancient port city of Thonis-Heracleion. Its remains are now located under the sea, 7 km (4.3 mi) from the coast of #Egypt. The city was Egypt’s largest port on the Mediterranean before the founding of Alexandria in 331 BC. Rising sea levels and earthquakes caused part of the Nile Delta to disappear completely underwater, taking the city with it. It was rediscovered in 2000. https://edition.cnn.com/travel/egypt-sunken-temple-discoveries/index.html

Did you know that #Ancient #Rome may have invented the #greenhouse?

When #Emperor Tiberius’ health declined, his doctors ordered him to eat one #cucumber per day.

The problem was that cucumbers are #summer plants.

Thus, in 30 CE, cucumbers were planted in carts filled with animal dung, that were then pushed into the sun during the day & brought indoors at night.

Did you know that in #ancient #Athens some men had to suffer as scapegoats for angry #gods ?

The Thargelia was an annual #festival for #Apollo & Artemis. While various rituals were performed, one involved choosing one (or two) very #ugly men, feeding them & either beating them & throwing them from a cliff, or casting them out of the city.

The 2 sacrifices were given necklaces of black figs & white figs - representing the #sacrifice from the men and women of Athens respectively.

“Burned House” Mystery: Why Did This #Ancient #Culture Torch Its Own Homes Every 60 Years?

The arsons were no accident, #archaeological evidence suggests.
Between 5500 and 2750 BC, the present-day countries of Romania, Moldova, and Ukraine were populated by a loosely affiliated group of people known as the Cucuteni-Trypillia culture. Although not nearly as well-known as the Sumerians of neighboring Mesopotamia, the Cucuteni-Trypillia culture is just as significant.

Did you know that there were artificially mummified bodies ~2k yrs before the #Ancient #Egypt?

In Northern #Chile, the Chinchorro people started mummifying their weakest: Children, babies, & the elderly.

Occuring after 5000 BCE, corpses were stripped of flesh & filled with fibre & clay.

These are the oldest examples of deliberate mummification.

That they mummified irrespective of social status is wholly unique.

PS: The Chinchorro #diet was 90% #seafood.

#history #ancienthistory #mummy

This is a photo of a Chinchorro mummy.

It shows the face and the upper torso of a child. 
We see a dark grey clay mask, with a discernible nose, mouth, and closed eyes. There is a wig of human hair, in a dark brown colour on its head. The hair is parted in the middle and quite thick.

The bit of torso we can see is clad in a dark, earth-stained tunic. It covers everything including the neck. The fabric looks coarse.

The mummy lies on grey sand.
This is another photo of a Chinchorro mummy.

It shows a corpse sitting with its legs drawn close to its body and its hands folded over its knees.

The mummy is covered in red ochre. The skin around its face is dry and thin, we see the face in profile so it's unclear how well the features are preserved.

We do see that the jaw shows nicely preserved teeth.

The fingers, including the fingernails, are also well preserved. 

The mummy wears pants & some kind of garment on top, but it is not clear due to the age & red colouring.

Long, dark sandy hair falls over its shoulders.

The background is a wooden bookshelf with old-looking books. (Probably a museum)

#Ancient #Architecture Might Be Key to Creating Climate-Resilient Buildings

Vernacular architecture is a way to use a region's heritage and resources to build strong homes and cities.

by Angely Mercado

"The United States has braved a year of multiple billion dollar weather disasters over the past couple of years. In 2021 alone, there were record-breaking #heatwaves , a #winterstorm that shut down cities across #Texas, multiple #hurricanes, record-breaking #wildfires, #tornadoes and #hail storms. All of which damaged public and private property and harmed people across the country.

"Part of preparing for even more extreme weather to come as a result of the #ClimateCrisis, is investing in resilient #infrastructure–something the current administration has already proposed. While building infrastructure may sound like a feat fit for futuristic technology, around the world climate-proofing has been happening already for centuries in the form of vernacular architecture. This form of architecture is defined by the use of traditional materials native to that particular region.

"According to a report in Oxford Urbanists, there is a possibility of a resurgence of vernacular architecture. Otherwise known as traditional, cultural design methods unique to a particular region, vernacular architecture is an alternative to the 'international style' of Eurocentric homes that took off globally after the first world war. Throughout the 20th century, 'identical skyscrapers, airports, malls and gas stations became icons of modern cities,' the report points out. However, those structures are not always made with climate change in mind, and don’t rely on locally sourced materials or local #cultural knowledge. Those homes were not made for the entire world’s diverse array of weather events like hurricanes, wildfires and tornadoes. Drawing on vernacular architecture could be a way of making our cities more resilient to an ever-changing climate.

"A well-known example of cultural and regional identity through vernacular architecture is #Pueblo architecture. The permanent, attached homes modeled after the cliff dwellings built by the Ancestral Pueblo (#Anasazi) culture first appeared around the year 1150 AD continue to be used by Pueblo peoples today. A common revival of the style called Santa Fe style, a mix of Pueblo architecture and Spanish colonial architecture, can be found in southwestern states like #Arizona and #NewMexico. Pueblo inspired homes that used dried mud often constructed with locally sourced materials. The thick mud walls are great insulation for both extreme heat and are made to protect residents from especially hot days and from cool desert nights.

"Across similarly sweltering Southern US states, vernacular architecture in the form of shotgun houses feature high ceilings for heat to rise up to, doors that are aligned to improve circulation into the home without costly AC bills.

"In some of the most heat-impacted places on the planet, #vernacular architecture is already being used worldwide in response to climate issues. Architects and designers are not just turning to local materials, they’re turning to #historical design to work around energy needs. Traditional #Arabian techniques like #mashrabiya have been incorporated into iconic modern buildings in Abu Dhabi, a city in one of the most heat-threatened countries in the world. Architects in #Morocco, which is especially vulnerable to climate change, have incorporated vernacular design, like large north-facing windows and smaller south-facing windows to bring in natural light while maximizing air flow for natural cooling and ventilation in public buildings like schools.

"'We wanted to retrieve a sense of heritage, but in a modern way,' Moroccan architect Driss Kettani told CNN. 'We tried to use the same (energy-efficient) solutions found in the small earthen towns in the south of Morocco.'

"These techniques can be used anywhere, even areas of the world with less-obvious climate impacts. Chris Lawson, the managing director at UK-based design firm CK Architectural says that the firm has worked in the #Cotswolds area, which is filled with towns that can source their own building materials. Woods used in the homes can come from local #trees that are already adapted for the English weather, which makes them an ideal building material. Builders are able to excavate the local limestone they need to build homes, a climate-friendly alternative to materials that often have to be transported from elsewhere and weren’t built to withstand the local weather.

"'It was incredibly strong, easy to find, a solid insulator from the Great British weather, and environmentally friendly due to no transportation requirements too,' he explains. 'This can be done across the whole world too.'"

Did you know that the Minotaur from #Greek #Mythology is connected to a real #palace?

Knossos was the main palace of the Minoans, a people located in #Crete, #Greece during the #BronzeAge.

The labyrinthine palace had many decorative double axes (”labryses”) on the walls.

The Labrys was likely used to sacrifice #bulls, which played a big part in Minoan #religion.

In turn, the Minoans were possibly influenced by the #Ancient #Egyptians & their #sun #god Ra, who rides a heavenly cow.

This photo shows a Labrys.

We see a small axe with two heads. Each head is opposite the other and connected by a middle section attached to the axe staff.

The ace heads are decorated with rounded lines of four, and then some more lines diagonally, tilted to the left.

The axe has a short staff, with a round "ear" in the end, likely to be hung up on a hook. The length is so short that it would have been easily holdable by anyone.

The material of the artifact looks like gold or shiny brass.
This is a photo of a reconstructed part of the palace of Knossos in Crete.

We see a brick wall, with bricks of uneven size, laid to connect nicely. The wall is perhaps 3 metres in height. it lies atop another level.

The wall had a ceiling with heavy smooth rocks. The front, facing us, as two straight thick lines and perfectly round ornamental dot-lines in between.

Then there are three massive pillars (and a fourth off to the side that is broken). The pillars are bright red, with black and yellow accents at the top and bottom. 

They protect a painted section of the brick wall. The section shows a fiery red bull, mid-run, with large gold horns. The background is a bright blue sky and some green trees.

High above Penzance in Cornwall, on the West Penwith moors, is a place where you literally touch the past.
I love places like this – Lanyon Quoit is a 'dolmen', a type of single-chamber megalithic tomb dating from the early Neolithic period (4000 to 3000 BC).
Even better if you arrive to find you're the only one around!
