Meh. Vandals. Rigged too, I dare say.

The Meidum Geese may be a forgery!

How would the presence of a scene underneath indicate forgery +Julia Thorne?  Artists often reuse old artworks.  There are many of examples of stones being reused from other temples to build new ones and some have scenes on them from the original structure.

This made me chuckle :-)
Noel Gallagher has reportedly gone to great lengths to avoid Courtney Love over the years – once locking himself in a hotel room to side-step her "rowdiness".

+Aakheperure Merytsekhmet​ To be honest, I'd probably hide from her too :-)

We don't yet have a reliable history for this period; there is no sign on the continent of migration to Britain; though we may surmise the points from which some set sail, we can't be sure that those points were their homeland. Examination of apparently settler inhumations in Britain has not told us where on the continent they may have come from. The fortifications of the Saxon Shore are pre-Saxon settlement by at least a century. The ship of Sutton Hoo looks to have come from southern Sweden. I wouldn't trust anything written in the name of Gildas.
I think we have a long way to go on this.

Brit winner Paloma Faith, who went on anti-Thatcher rallies in her pushchair, has asked Guardian columnist Owen Jones to appear with her on stage. It’s time pop stars stopped being sheepish, says the outspoken singer

Day 4 of The Satire of the Trades over on my +Digital Egyptology page :-)
 
The Satire of the Trades #4: the carpenter

Today's victim is the carpenter, focussing on the long hours and physical exhaustion. Better than claw-hands and smelling of fish roe, if you ask me :-)

The carpenter who wields an adze,
He is wearier than a field labourer,
His field is the timber, his hoe the adze.
There is no end to his labour.
He does more than his arms can do,
Yet at night he kindles light.
